The Golden Age of Science or Scientific Revolution, which took place in the 16th and 17th centuries, was a time of unprecedented learning and discovery. During this period, the foundations of modern science were laid, thanks to breakthroughs in the fields of physics, mathematics, chemistry, biology, and astronomy. And when it comes to astronomy, the most influential scholar was definitely Nicolaus Copernicus, the man credited with the creation of the Heliocentric model of the Universe.
The Heliocentric Model of the universe refers to the Copernican Model by Nicolaus Copernicus. Also known as the Sun-centered model where the planets orbit around the sun in a circular motion. It is the best model of the solar system and what is known to be the model that revolutionized science.
