Nicolaus Copernicus

Nicolaus Copernicus published that the sun is to be in the center with the earth revolving around it, instead of earth being the center.

This idea was so important in history, it was frequently referred to as "Copernican Revolution". Later on Kepler proved that the solar system is actually heliocentric. (Credit:en.wikipedia.org & famousscientists.org)
