Urania is an astronomy muse. Astronomy, the finest of sciences, rules over the Planetarium. Observing and studying the night sky people came to understand the world around them. For a long time the world seemed to be mysterious and hostile to people. However, after having discovered the laws of nature, people learned to understand them and triumphed over their fear of the elemental things.
