Today's Google doodle is an homage to the pioneering astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus. Today marks his 540th birthday and Google celebrates it with a very original and illustrative doodle. The doodle depicts the sun surrounded by seven planets.
Nicolaus Copernicus (19 February 1473 – 24 May 1543) was a Renaissance mathematician and astronomer who formulated a comprehensive heliocentric model which placed the Sun, rather than the Earth, at the center of the universe.
