About

Heliocentrism, also spelled heliocentricism, is the astronomical model proposed by Renaissance mathematician Nicolaus Copernicus in which the Earth and other planets revolve around a stationary Sun at the center of the Solar System. When it was invented, the model was opposed to the then-dominant belief of geocentrism, a model in which the Earth rests at the orbital center of all celestial bodies.
