Nicolaus Copernicus

       My name is Oliwia. I live in Torun, Poland. 

       Torun is the city were was born one of the most important Polish scientists Nicolaus Copernicus. He was born on 19 February 1473 and death 24 May 1543 in Frauenburg. Copernikus was an eminent Polish mathematician and astronomer.
       He presented a model of the solar system or system of bodies orbiting the sun. It will go down in history as one who stopped the sun, the earth moved. He
wrote a book titled "On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres". In Torun is the house where Copernicus was born, Copernikus street and Copernicus monument. I am very proud that Copernicus lived in Toruń.
