Description

This illustration of the solar system, from the book 'On the Revolution of the Heavenly Spheres' by Nicholas Copernicus (1473-1543) and published in Latin in 1543, was the first to show the earth in orbit around the sun. It began a revolution in human thought and displaced mankind from the centre of the universe.
