Earth was still considered the centre of the universe when Dutch cartographer Andreas Cellarius first published his cosmographical atlas in 1660. This ancient belief is reflected in a chart outlining the hypothesis as understood by Hellenistic Greek scholar Claudius Ptolemy. Sixteenth-century Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe proposed that the Sun and Moon encircled the Earth, with other planets orbiting the Sun.
