This Week in Greek Facts

 

The Sun Centered Universe

Who was the first to state that the Earth revolved around the Sun?

It was a Greek by the name of Aristarchus.  He lived on the island of Samos in the time period of 200 B.C.  His idea came down to us from a quote by the ancient Greek mathematician Archimedes.

When Copernicus looked back at ancient writings, he supported the idea proposed by Aristarchus.  An idea of a sun centered solar system.  Unfortunately, Aristarchus is given little credit for his idea.
