Best Answer

Aristarchus, Copernicus, and Galileo all supported the idea that the planets revolve around the Sun.

The sun is the center of the solar system. All the early astronomers agreed to this fact.

Aristarchus placed the sun at the center of the solar system and postulated the fact that planets rotate in circular orbits around the Sun.

Copernicus in his work published in 1543 also placed the sun at the center of the solar system with Earth and other planets moving around it.

Using the Telescopes he made himself, Galileo also discovered that the sun is at the center of the solar system and planets orbited around the sun and not vice versa.

Therefore; Aristarchus, Copernicus, and Galileo all supported the idea that the planets revolve around the Sun.
