Copernican Theory?

Answer

Heliocentric theory is the astronomical standard in which the Earth and other planets rotate around a fairly motionless Sun at the midpoint of the Solar System. The word Heliocentric comes from the Greek. Historically, heliocentrism was contrary to geocentrism, which located the Earth at the center.
