who stated that the planets move around the sun during an eclipse?
Copernicus was an astronomer who stated that the sun was at the center of our solar system and that the planets rotated around it. Up until that time it was commonly believed that the planets, and the sun, rotated around the Earth. He wasn't the first, but was definitely the most famous for it. He also worked to develop better telescopes during the course of his studies.
It is the theory in which the earth is the center of the universe and that all the planets revolve around it including the sun. this theory was developed by Aristotle. Geocentric theory basically stated that the Earth was at the center of the universe, and that the sun, moon, planets, and other heavenly bodies revolved around it. This theory was believed extensively during the middle ages.
The number of stars in our galaxy is a few hundred billion. You probably refer to the number of stars that have planets; it is known that many stars in our neighborhood have planets, but it is yet too early to give even an approximate percentage. It is possible that most stars have planets, but this can't be stated for sure, from the available data. The number of stars in our galaxy is a few…
Who stated that the earth and other planets orbit around the sun and the earth is not at the center of the universe?
What was Copernicus' theory about the sun and planets. how was it different from what people believed before?
Copernicus's theory was called the Heliocentric Theory. It said that the Earth and planets orbited around the sun, and the Sun was the center of the universe. The previous theory, mainly advocated by the Catholic Church, was called the Geocentric Theory; which stated that the Sun and planets orbited around the Earth, and that the Earth was the center of the Universe.
Ptolemy's theory was incorrect because he believed the Earth was at the center of the universe and that the other planets and the Sun revolved around it. However, he was later corrected by, I believe, Copernicus (Ca-per-ni-kus) who stated the Sun was in the center of the universe and that the planets, including Earth, revolved around it.
When Galileo looked through the telescope he found evidence that supported the Copernican Theory which stated what?
in medieval times we thought that the earth was the center of the universe and that all the planets of our solar system moved around the earth. the church used to preach this in those times as the bible had it that god created the earth at the center of the universe.no one questioned this. later during the renaissance period great astronomers like Copernicus, Galileo etc with the aid of newly invented telescopes stated that…
Terrestrial planets move faster in their orbits because they are closer to the Sun. Isaac Newton, who discovered the effects of gravity, stated that gravity gets stronger the closer you get to a large, massive body (like the Sun) - and this makes the planets orbit faster than the outer planets, where the force of the Sun's gravity is less. Their orbits are also smaller, so it takes less time for them to go around…
Of all the things I can think of related to Science is stated in the Quran. Not evolution and if it was then it would say that there is no such thing as evolution. But like the whole theory about other planets and finding water or other creatures we have never heard of that are being discovered are all stated in the Quran. Not all people will understand though.
