If my short study of Astronomy has taught one thing, it is how influential Astronomy has been on our way of thinking as a species. This influence can be seen in ancient times, when civilizations such as in Mesopotamia, Mesoamerica, Egypt, China, India, and Greece placed Astronomy and Astrology at the centers of their ideology, usually in the form of religion. The modern changes in our comprehension of Astronomy, whether the understanding of heliocentricity, the discovery of new planets, stars, and galaxies through advanced telescopes and mathematical predictions, or the model of space-time, have each changed the way humans not only see the universe around us but also how we see ourselves. Just as Kepler’s discovery that the sun was the center of the solar system changed much of how we perceived ourselves (as we could no longer be the center of the universe), so also has the probability of life on other worlds caused us to question our place in the universe, our identity as a species. Only time will tell how we will define ourselves or how species from other planets, if such species exist, will see us. Maybe we will be defined by global wars or self-imposed destructive climate change, or maybe we will adapt and solve these problems. Regardless, Astronomy has done much to prompt these questions which it itself cannot answer. It is up to us to address these questions; and address them we will, even if we do not set out to.
