Caption: Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543), Polish astronomer. Copernicus was the first astronomer to formulate a scientifically-based heliocentric cosmology that displaced the Earth from the center of the universe. His epochal book, De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres), is often regarded as the starting point of modern astronomy. Artwork from a 19th century postcard.
