Outer Wilds Review – an irresistible miniature solar system for the laidback explorer – Eurogamer

From Eurogamer: “The world’s oldest still-operational planetarium was created to disprove the end of the world. In May 1774, the Frisian clergyman Eelco Alta published a book on an impending planetary alignment, declaring this “a preparation or a commencement of the demolishing or destruction” of the universe. In an age when afflictions such as headaches and blindness were often attributed to stars and planets, Alta’s prediction quickly caught on: edgier Dutch bards began composing doomsday songs, and other printers rushed to cash in on mounting public panic. “
