youthink is older
the geocentric
model or the
heliocentric
model?*

the geocentric
Model!

theory, which people had

the Christian era...
Copernicus (1473–1543)
Astronomer, born in
Poland, who was also
a priest and a doctor

geocentric MODEL
is older than
the heliocentric
MODEL.

MODEL was PROPOSED by

aN Ancient Grk
philosopher, WHO
