Nicolaus Copernicus was a famous Polish astronomer and mathematician. He was best known for his work “On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres,” which states that the Sun is the center of the solar system.
Copernicus was from Thorn, Poland. Michael Montagne, his father, was Polish and his mother was German. These countries still fight over his origin.
