The Geometry of Heavenly Matter Formations

Authors: Nicolae Mazilu

Our visual cosmic spectacle is populated with matter formations of sophisticated geometrical shapes. Many of these are flat, or at least tend to be flat. The geometrical description of these started, historically, with circles, going through conic sections and ending with spirals. The flat formations, of matter both static and in motion, helped creating the modern theory of gravitation. They decided the modern image of the world we live in. Are they connected? Yes! The geometry of this connection is presented, starting from its main physical reasons: we cannot see them but in projections on the canopy.
