The Study of Astronomy

We watched an article called The Ancient Study of Astronomy and I learnt heaps.

3 Facts

This article talks about three different ancient races (Greeks, Babylonians and Mayans) that explored astronomy. I learnt from this article was that the Babylonians invented the calendar. The Mayans could predict motion of the planet. The Mayans also had a calendar the base number system was 20.

I wondering is that what would today look like without the calendar? And what would life be like now if we used the Mayans calendar

A question that I have and am sure a lot of other people have is how did they figure all this out in the ancient times, even if it was incorrect? Another question I had was that when exactly did the Babylonians invent the calendar?
