Boy, Were we Wrong about the Solar System by Kathleen V Kudinski, illustrated by John Rocco

Some people used to think that Earth was smack-dab in the middle of the universe, with all the stars and planets held in the sky by giant glass balls. "Boy, were they wrong!" In this follow-up to the award-winning "Boy, Were We Wrong About Dinosaurs!," Kathleen Kudlinski and John Rocco look at the mistakes, mishaps, and creativity that are part of scientific discovery. From the first humans wondering about the night sky to the demotion of Pluto to dwarf planet status, this book is an entertaining and informative look at how scientific theories change over time.
