Heliocentrism, the astronomical model in which the Earth and planets revolve around the Sun at the center of the Solar System, had been proposed as early as the 3rd century BC but attracted little attention. Geocentrism, where the Earth was the center of the Universe, was the accepted understanding of our Solar System by many ancient civilizations. It was not until the 16th century that mathematician and astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus presented a mathematical model of a heliocentric system that the concept became widely accepted. The publication of the model was a major event in the history of science and a pioneering contribution to the Scientific Revolution.
