A Polish astronomer, developed the theory that Earth is a moving planet. He claimed that Earth and the other planets revolve around the sun, which he considered to be motionless. Astronomers now know that the sun is just one of many stars orbiting the center of our galaxy. But Copernicus’s ideas about the roles of the sun and planets were essentially correct. Copernicus comes up with the heliocentric theory.(the sun is in the middle and the planets orbit it)
