A Taste of History | Episode | David Rittenhouse’s Orrery

David Rittenhouse taught himself Newton’s Laws by the age of 13. Soon after he became an expert clockmaker, and then a Professor of Astronomy. Rittenhouse created an orrery, an elaborate machine to track the movements of the sun, the moon and the stars that is as beautiful as it is spectacular. We’ll see Rittenhouse’s orrery, and learn about his life as Chef Staib prepares a Crown Roast of Pork.
