Today is Copernicus’s 541th birthday. You may remember Copernicus as the man who said “Hey, what if the Earth went around the sun?” To which the Catholic Church replied “Hey, what if we set you on fire?”
Copernicus died of natural causes in 1543.Tumblr isn’t a place to where petty facts get in the way of someone trying to feel clever.
"Hello, I’m Troy Copernicus. You may remember me from such treatises as, ‘What The Hell Is Heliocentrism, Anyway’ and ‘All Your Debased Coinage Are Belong To Us’."
