Copernicus was born on the 19th of February 1473 in Poland, Torun. He lived a long life, passing at the age of 70 years old in Poland, Frombork on the 24th of May 1543.
Nicolaus Copernicus discovered that the Sun was in the centre of the Solar System not the Earth. Later he published a book called "On the revolution of heavenly spheres" writing to explain his discovery and Earths rotation and motion. Copernicus also helped other astronomers build on his idea.
