The Copernican Revolution — the heliocentric model of the Universe introduced by Nicolaus Copernicus — is considered as one of the most significant achievements in the history of science. And yet, it luckily happened despite many obstacles and even then it could have become unnoticed and forgotten. This year marks the 550th anniversary of the birth of Nicolaus Copernicus which gives us additional motivation to have a closer look at his highly extraordinary life and achievement.
