Heliocentric Theory

The heliocentric model is a theory that places the Sun as the center of the universe, and the planets orbiting around it. The heliocentric model replaced geocentrism, which is the belief that the Earth is the center of the universe. The geocentric model was the prevailing theory in Ancient Greece, throughout Europe, and other parts of the world for centuries. It was not until the 16th century that the heliocentric model began to gain popularity because technology progressed enough to gain more evidence in its favor. Although heliocentrism did not gain popularity until the 1500′s, the idea had existed for centuries throughout the world.
