    This purports to be a forensic reconstruction of Copernicus' face. Not sure exactly where to post this, but would like to share it with the widest audience possible.

    Didn't I see him on 'Law & Order' a couple of weeks ago?

    So now, DNA results of hairs collected from books Copernicus owned, indicate they are from the same person as that found in the unmarked grave buried in the 14th-century Frombork Cathedral in Poland where Nikolaus served as a canon. The skeletal remains were found in 2005. This is strong supporting evidence that the body they found, are the remains of Nikolaus Copernicus.
