Storyboard Text

  • February 19, 1473 Torun, Poland
  • He shall be named Mikolaj Kopernik, after your father
  • He's adorable!
  • Stay strong, my boy. Get over your father's death. I will take care of you.
  • All right Uncle...
  • Mid-1480s
  • After a few years... While he is studying law..
  •  Now, I can study law as much as I want, but only during my free time... But I really like astronomy though.....
  • I've been able to se Ptolemy was inaccurate... It just doesn't make sense....UNLESS....Of course! Earth isn't at the center of the universe, the sun is! And we go around it! I now want to make my own observatory....
  • After a few more years again.....
  • Around 1514, Copernicus published his first book, Commentariolus, (Small commentary) a small 40-page manuscript listing his heliocentric idea. Right now, Copernicus is reading his second book, De revolutionibus orbium coelestium, (On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres). Sadly, no one seems to be liking it.
  • I can't believe this. Both Lutherans and the Catholic Church hate my book!
  • Even more sad? Copernicus was too weak to defend his ideas. He died May 24, 1543, in Frombork, Poland. He was clutching a copy of his second book when he died from the aftermath of a stroke.
  • 1616.....
  • I hereby declare De revoultionibus orbium celestium is banned and forbidden to read!
  • It won't be banned for long though! It was eventually removed from the list of forbidden reading material.
