Copernicus (1473–1543) - Copernicus

Nicolaus Copernicus (1473–1543): Nicolaus Copernicus revolutionized our understanding of the cosmos. Known primarily for formulating a heliocentric cosmology, Copernicus’ model displaced the Earth from the center of the universe and positioned the Sun at the heart of the solar system. Although controversial in his time, this perspective provided the foundation for the future development of modern astronomy, changing the course of scientific thought forever.
