Nicolaus Copernicus (b. 19 February, 147324 May, 1543) was a Polish polymath who lived during the Renaissance era.[1] He was a contemporary of Paracelsus and Leonardo Da Vinci.[2]

Copernicus is best known for his astronomical work. This included coming up with the first comprehensive heliocentric cosmology, which displaced the Earth from the centre of the universe.[1] In addition, he was a mathematician, astronomer, physician, quadrilingual polyglot, classical scholar, translator, artist, Catholic cleric, jurist, governor, military leader, diplomat and economist.[1]
