Biography

Nicholas Copernicus was born February 19, 1473 in Torun ,Poland. His first language was German, being of German decent, even though he grew up in Poland. Raised in Poland, Copernicus's father passed away when he was only 10 years old. His uncle Bishop of Varmia Lucas Watzenrode, adopted Copernicus and raised him giving him the best education possible. Graduating from the University of Cracow in 1494 he returned to Torun and took a canon's position in the local church. Two years later Copernicus moved to Italy and met an astronomer who influenced him to begin in his studies of astronomy. He then went on to begin the Scientific revolution(or help start it up) and then died May 24, 1543. Citations-http://www.biography.com/people/nicolaus-copernicus-9256984?page=1
