  • The great Indian mathematician and astronomer, Arjabhatta (476 to 550 CE), wrote that the Earth is spherical, that the Earth rotates on its axis daily, and the apparent movement of the star is caused by the rotation of the Earth on its axis. Note: He wrote this almost 1,000 years before Copernicus and Galileo!
