The Copernicus Science Centre was named after the genius of Polish astronomy, Nicolaus Copernicus, the man who thanks to him, the world understood that the Earth was not the center of the universe, as the Church had claimed until then, and imposed its opinion on scientists, but that the Earth was one of the planets orbiting the sun.
It is important to know that Copernicus' official functions were as a clergyman, governor, jurist, astrologer, and physician, while astronomy was a hobby and side-work for him.
His theory of the centrality of the sun in what the solar system will follow is undoubtedly one of the most important discoveries in history and has influenced many other areas of human history.
Copernicus's theory is called the Heliocentric Theory, which places the sun at the center of the solar system and the Earth as an environment. This theory contradicted the prevailing geocentric approach, which placed the Earth at the center of the universe and a version of the planets and the sun that surrounded us.
Fortunately for Copernicus, the resourcefulness of the owner of the printing house that printed his book saved him. He added a brief introduction, which indicated that Copernicus's theory is merely a mathematical tool for calculating the motion of the celestial bodies. Thanks to this fact, the Church approved the publication of his book and did not view it as challenging to God. In this way, Copernicus was saved from a difficult fate that was given to those who thought differently from the dominant religious approach, according to what the center of the universe was.
