Galileo February 15, 1564-January 8, 1642
Copernicus February 19, 1473-May 21,1543
Thales (c. 624 – c. 546 BC) and Anaximander(c. 610—546 B.C.E.)
This is Galileo he presented evidence for heliocentrism to prove that Copernicus was correct but was under house arrest because suggesting that ¨Earth wasn't at the center of the universe¨.Galileo helped convince people that the Sun-centered solar system model (the heliocentric model), as by Copernicus, was correct.
Aristotle (384 B.C.-322 B.C.)
This is Copernicus he believed that the "Earth revolved around the sun"(heliocentrism).He believed almost the same thing as Aristarchus but Copernicus called it heliocentrism.He determined that the Earth spun on its axis.
Aristarchus (310 B.C.- 230 B.C.)
This is Thales in the gray and Anaximander in the brown.Thales thought the Earth was flat like a plate because he thought everything comes out of water and that the earth floats on water. Anaximander thought the Earth was a cylindrical like a can of beans becuase
Pythagoras (570 B.C.-490 B.C.)
"Aristotle was a very clever scientist who proved the Earth was a sphere not the shape of a can of beans". Earth casts a round shadow on the moon during a lunar eclipse, and different constellations are visible at different latitudes.
Aristarchus believed that the,"Earth was a sphere,and that it spun around the sun". He determined that the Earth spun on its axis.He attempted to measure the distance from the moon to the sun.
Pythagoras believed that,¨crystal spheres spun around the Earth¨.Pythagoras was a founder of the Pythagoreanism movement. Pythagoreans believed but failed to prove that the universe could be understood in terms of whole numbers
