Nicolaus Copernicus

Nicolaus Copernicus (1473 - 1543) – Polish astronomer who defended the theory of heliocentrism, according to which the Earth revolves around the Sun (in opposition to geocentrism). A so-called ‘Copernican revolution’ resulted from this theory. His main work is ‘De revolutionibus orbium coelestium’ (On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres).

Nicolas Copernic (1473 - 1543) – Astronome polonais qui a défendu la théorie de l'héliocentrisme, selon laquelle la Terre tourne autour du Soleil (en opposition au géocentrisme alors en vigueur). Une révolution dite copernicienne en sera issue. Son ouvrage principal est De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (Des révolutions des orbes célestes ou des sphères célestes).
