Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

Nicolaus Copernicus

Explanation:

  • Nicolaus  Copernicus was a Polish astronomer, mathematician, lawyer, physician and economist.
  • Copernicus is the first scientist to formulate a heliocentric system of space bodies, according to which the Sun is at the center of the solar system, not Earth, as previously believed.
  • His work provoked violent reactions, but was quickly accepted in scientific circles.
  • However, this was not easily accepted by the church, which is why the Pope forbade this act in 1616 and declared Copernicus a heretic because his ideas went against church teaching. It did not help that Copernicus dedicated this work to the Pope.
