Nicolaus Copernicus was born on the 19th of February 1473. He passed away at the age of 70 on the 24th of May 1543.
Nicolaus was born in the city of Thorn in Royal Prussia, part of the Kingdom of Poland.
His field of expertise was in mathematics, astronomy, canon laws, medicine, and economics.
He studied at the University of Cracow from 1491 to 1494.
He spoke 5 different languages which include: Latin, German, Polish, Greek, and Italian.
Nicolaus came up with a theory that the Earth isn’t the center of the universe. He believed that the center of the Earth is the sun. The planets go around the sun, instead of the universe circling the earth.
He proposed a heliocentric and suggested that Earth was a planet, that it rotated, and that Earth and the other planets revolved around the sun.
His real name was Nikals Kopenik and it was Latinized to Nicolaus Copernicus. He came from a middle class background. When Nicolaus Copernicus was 10 his father died and he was raised by his uncle. His uncle gave him a good education.
Nicolaus Copernicus was a true Renaissance man. He also was a lawyer, tax collector, a doctor, military governor, judge, vicar-general of canon law and a Polish astronomer.
His book De Revolutions “On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres” was his most famous piece of work.
Copernicus book was published in March 1543 at Nuremberg
Nicolaus Copernicus's knowledge was spread to others and he also set the scene for major advances in science. Copernicus also marked the beginning of a scientific revolution and astronomy.
Copernicus first studied astronomy and astrology at the University of Cracow (1491-94).
Copernicus studied medicine at the University of Padua (1501-3)
And then moved on to the University of Ferrara where he obtained a doctorate in Canon Law (1503).
After he published his book two months later, Nicolaus Copernicus died from a stroke induced coma in 1543.
