Animated Google Doodle: Celebrating Nicolaus Copernicus 540th Birthday

Have you notice something when you click the Google home page today? You probably saw this awesome animated Google doodle where planets move around the sun's gravity. Google celebrates the 540th birthday of Nicolaus Copernicus, a mathematician and astronomer. Nicolaus Copernicus who was born on February 19, 1473 formulated the heliocentric model which placed the Sun (not the Earth) at the center of the universe.

He is known as the great polymaths of the Renaissance, jurist with a doctorate in law, a physician, a quadrilingual polyglot (speaks several languages), classics scholar, translator, artist, governor, diplomat and economist. What an extraordinary man in his time.
