Copernicus, Galileo and Newton

Imagine trying to prove that the Earth moves around the Sun without even a telescope to help you (Copernicus), or being imprisoned for suggesting that the Earth isn’t the centre of the universe (Galileo). How about coming up with a universal theory to explain how everything moves in the Solar System (Newton). It’s impressive stuff!
