From the start of solar orbit, planets acted as satellites rotated around planets in a variable orbit measured in degrees. The measure of how many degrees is known as an angle. Before this, even, electrons in atoms rotated around core particles like protons and neutrons at variable specific angles. These angles were measured in degrees and were based around the number 60. This base was also used to measure time (60seconds =1minute and so on) which came from...
