Aristarchus of Samos r st rk s , Aristarkhos c 310 c 230 BCE was an ancient Greek astronomer and mathematician who presented the first known model that placed the Sun at the center of the known universe with the Earth revolving around it see Solar system He was influenced by Philolaus of Croton, but he identified the central fire with the Sun, and put the other planets in their correct order of distance around the Sun His astronomical ideas were often rejected in favor of the geocentric theories of Aristotle and Ptolemy.

Although I did maths up to calculus, I don't have a mathematical bent and so this book was a tad laborious for me but nonetheless interesting to see how far the Greeks got  Archimedes of course a wonder with his near enough pi and the rest. Aristarchus came up with the heliocentric earth and I wondered if he hadn't miscalculated the distances from the earth of sun and moon might he not have thought the planets too went round the sun. His proof seemed all right to me and must've been or the edit [...]
