Nicolas Copernicus was an astronomer who first gave the theory (which is now proven) that all planets revolve around the sun, which is called the heliocentric model of the solar system. The belief at the time was that the Earth was the center of the solar system/universe. We now know that Copernicus was right, but everybody in his time said he was a nutcase, and his heliocentric model didn't become popular until after Galileo and Kepler.
Researchers in the 16th century itself has predicted the existence of the North Pole. Several explorers tried to reach the North Pole in the 18th century. In 1827, a British naval officer named William Edward Parry tried, but was forced to turn back.Later in 1871, an expedition led by American Charles Hall had also failed.In 1895 Norwegian explorers Fridtjof Nansen and Fredrik Hjalmar Johansen got to 86 degrees 14' North prior to being forced back. The Italian whaler Stella Polare got to 86 degrees and 34'. In the first part of 19th century a man by name Frederick Cook who was an American declared that he reached the pole on April 21, 1908. But his expedition was not recognized due to lack of sufficient evidence. Later an American naval engineer Robert Peary claimed he reached the North Pole on April 6, 1909. His expedition is still under dispute. One of the objections was that none of Peary's men were trained for navigation. His expedition is also said to be 3 times faster than any other expeditions to the pole.
