    Copernicus has been given a proper, respectful burial in Poland.

    Something tells me Copernicus is rolling over in his grave.

    NASA has an article about Nicolaus Copernicus. I hope everybody knows by now that I love NASA!:biggrin: "Nicolaus Copernicus died more than 450 years ago but is still considered the founder of modern astronomy!"

    It's pretty fascinating how they identified his remains.

    Ah, I was wondering if you had just heard about his passing.
