“Copernicus, or Nicholas Koppernigk, was the founder of modern astronomy. From a school in Thorn Copernicus went to Cracow, where he studied medicine, theology, mathematics, and astronomy. He latterly came to the following conclusions: That the sun was the center of the system; that the earth was a planet like Mars and Venus; and that all the planets revolve round the sun."—(Charles Leonard-Stuart, 1911)
