The heliocentric man Nicolas Copernicus Copernicus was a polish
astronomer that was born in Toruń, Poland the 19th February of 1473 and lived in Warsaw until 65 years when he moved to Frombork in Poland where he died the 24th May of 1543. He made great astronomic discoveries such as the heliocentric theory. Nicolas Copernicus was also studying maths and phisics apart from astronomy. He is probably the most important astronomer in the world apart from Kepler and Galileo Galilei. He said thet Aristotle was wrong and that he was right. The geocentric theory and the heliocentric theory. Copernicalism was extended
when Galileo Galilei verified the heliocentric theory of Copernicus also with Johannes Kepler he became more famous and he got more followers. So the people started to protest about the execution of Copernicus and the Church was experimenting a complicated moment. Apart from astronomer. Nicolas Copernicus was also an economist and he published a monetary law called : Monetae cudendae ratio and he made this law for the Prussian Diet (Prime minister of Prussia) called Graudenz and the law said that bad money drives out good. Copernicus focused on the connection between increased money supply and inflation. Monetae cudendae ratio is a theory that went into a law when he gave it to the Prussian Diet. Copernicus helped in the
monetary developing of the Kingdom of Poland
apart from Mathematics, phisics and astronomy. Monetae cudendae ratio Copernicus died in Frombork
with 70 years the 24 of May of 1543. When Copernicus died he had the book De revolutionibus orbium coelestium. He had in his hand the first printed copy when he died on his bed. The tomb of Copernicus is in the cathedral of Frombork. The 22 of May of 2010 he was gave a second massive funeral. De revolutionibus orbium coelestium was
a book about the heliocentric theory that
Copernicus wrote from 1507 to 1532. This book was powerfully influenced by Copernicus and is the base of all astronomers studying asteroids, planets. The orbit that they make around the sun and around its axis. (Asteroids only move around the sun because they don´t have any axis to rotate around themselfs). This work of Copernicus helped Galileo Galilei with the invention of the telescope. Also he wrote this book and sent it to the church and to the pope but they said that no and they condemned him to be in his house forever. He died in Frombork . The Vatican was extremely angry with him. Copernicus was in trouble. He made discoveries that the church didn´t like so he was judged by the church and condemned him to be in his house the rest of his life because they said that the geocentric theory that Aristotle said was true but Copernicus said that no and an astronomer will come and demonstrate thet he was right. (Galileo Galilei) This is the text in german.
