Nicolaus Copernicus

On February 19, 1473, astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus was born in Torun, Poland. Copernicus’s revolutionary concept of a heliocentric solar system, which identified the sun as the center of the solar system, significantly changed scientific thinking. His theories laid the basis for the coming of the Scientific Revolution.
