A description of the workings of the Antikythera mechanism (a 2000-year-old device for predicting the movement of planets, discovered near Crete in 1900) and of how these workings reflect Ancient Greek understandings of the workings of the cosmos. This story also considers the significant implications for our understanding of Ancient Greek science and technology.
