We wouldn't live nearly as long as we do without them. The same goes for the discoveries of the solar system. It is impossible to rand their importance, so they are listed in the order they were discovered. The first time humans have ever discovered a planet was in the 2nd millennium BC by the ancient Babylonian astronomers.

It is one of many of his works that was able to stay in great condition; it has been well preserved over the years with no missing or faded out sections (Lightbown 164). His most productive years was in the decade of the 1480’s when he was called to Rome along with other artists to decorate the walls of the Sistine Chapel with scenes from the Old and New Testaments and of course it’s also when he created “The Mars and Venus” in c. 1483 (Campbell 73).

He travelled in France and Italy (1804–6), wrote whimsical journals and letters, then returned to New York City to practice law -- though by his own admission, he was not a good student, and in 1806, he barely passed the bar. He and his brother William Irving and James Kirke Paulding wrote the Salamagundi papers (1807–8), a collection of humorous essays. He first became more widely known for his comic work, A History of New York (1809), written under the name of "Diedrich Knickerbocker." In 1815 Irving went to England to work for his brothers' business, and when that failed he composed a collection of stories and essays that became The Sketch Book, published under the name "Geoffrey Crayon" (1819–20), which included ‘Rip Van Winkle’ and ‘The Legend of Sleepy Hollow’.
