Nicolaus Copernicus, born February 19, 1473, died May 24, 1543. Copernicus is famous for his discovery that the sun is the center of the solar system. Copernicus was one of the first to try and say that the sun is the center of the solar system, because the catholic church believed that the Earth was the center of everything. Copernicus was forced to, like Galileo, deny his discovery due to the fact that he would be tortured.
