His work is framed in one of the most beautiful and interesting periods of the human adventure of discovery and knowledge, since it belongs to the very beginning of modern science. Copernicus’ theory was the base for the studies later carried out by Galileo, Kepler or Newton.

He finally studies the influence of Copernicus’ works, both on his period and nowadays.
