The lecture was Hermann Helmholtz's farewell lecture in Heidelberg in 1871. He presented Immanuel Kant's and Pierre-Simon Laplace's independently developed hypothesis that the solar system was created through the attraction and repulsion of matter. As proof of the similarity of matter between the sun and the earth, he refers to the results of the spectral analysis developed by Robert W. Bunsen and Gustav R. Kirchhoff in Heidelberg in 1860.
