Copernicus and Galileo and Cli-fi

''Did you know that in May 1543, Nicolaus Copernicus, a Polish man living in Prussia, published "On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres," a book that used mathematics and astronomy to postulate how the earth and the then-known planets rotated on their own axes as they orbited a stationary sun. Within days of its printing, however, Copernicus died.
''His theory of “heliocentrism,” the first scientific challenge to Biblical and Greek teachings of an earth-centered universe, almost died with him. Assorted scholars and church officials undermined his discovery for nearly 200 years until, in a different era and with all his critics dead, it finally became accepted science.''
