The ‘doodle’ from Google returns once again to remember the life and times of a leading figure in the story. Today marks 540 years of the birth of Nicholas Copernicus , a parent of heliocentrism.
Copernicus’s theory marked a break with the scientific standards of the time, when the geocentric theory dominated astronomy.
Besides astronomer, Copernicus, like many scientists of the time, cultivated various branches of knowledge, among which are mathematics, physics, law or economics.
He advanced his theories earned him a bad reputation in the Renaissance, and that put into question the established idea of the Earth-centered universe.
