[ November 7th 2005 ]

Polish archaeologists have unearthed what they believe are the skeletal remains of 16th century cleric Nicholas Copernicus during an excavation of Frombork Cathedral on Poland's Baltic coast, Reuters reports this morning.

A computer reconstruction of the skull showed the head of a grey-haired man of 70, the age Copernicus died. The analysis also revealed a scar above the left eye and a broken nose, both injuries sustained by Copernicus during his lifetime.

Nicolaus Copernicus was a Polish astronomer, mathematician and economist who developed the heliocentric (Sun-centered) theory of the solar system in a form detailed enough to make it scientifically useful.

Copernicus also asserted that the earth and the other planets revolved around the sun, toppling the then widespread belief that the world was the center of the universe, Reuters reports.
