Wikipedia is your friend, Mr. O’Reilly.

Bill O’Reilly is curious about how tides work, why we have a moon, and where the sun came from. All of which are deep mysteries for which no answers can be found. Unless you look them up, of course. (When I was an undergraduate, Wikipedia didn’t exist yet, so I had to learn this stuff the old fashioned way — by taking a course in stellar astronomy and one in planetary astronomy).
