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
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.
