Recentering the Universe
The Radical Theories of Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, and NewtonBook - 2014
"... shows how a group of European scientists, in the span of roughly one hundred and fifty years (early 1500s to the mid-1600s) and working through direct observation, overturned the centuries' old accepted view of a geocentric universe. Through their research and writings, they proposed and described a new order of things in which the Earth orbits the Sun. In so doing, these scientists--Nicolaus Copernicus, Johannes Kepler, Tycho Brahe, Galileo Galilei, and Isaac Newton--challenged the accepted wisdom of the ages, specifically that of the Catholic Church."--Provided by publisher.
