Nicolaus Copernicus Birthday !

Thanks to Copernicus we no longer believe that the Earth is the Centre of the Universe, no doubt this great mastermind, an expert in astronomy, economics, mathematics, medicine and politics among other subjects.

But not only in sciences did Copernicus surprise us, he was also multilingual, he spoke Latin and German fluently and he is also said to have spoken Italian and Greek. It is true that most of the documents which still remain were written in Latin but some written in German still exist.

He is mostly known for his book De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium. Copernicus died at the age of 70 some people say he was presented with the final copy of his book right on the very day he died.
