Illustration showing Thomas Wright's explanation of the Milky Way, from his book An Original Theory of the Universe, published in London in 1750. Wright (1711-86) gave the first correct explanation of the appearance of the Milky Way as being due to our immersion in a layer of stars. An observer at A would see few stars when looking towards B or C, more when looking towards E, F or G and many stars when looking along the plane towards H. Wright proposed that the Sun is one of many stars orbiting around a Divine Centre and that the stars are distributed either in thin, concentric, spherical shells or in annuli, like the rings of Saturn. This giclée print offers beautiful color accuracy on a high-quality paper (235 gsm) that is a great option for framing with its smooth, acid free surface. Giclée (French for “to spray”) is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are sprayed onto the paper’s surface creating natural color transitions.
