Who first described the heliocentric model of the Sun and planets? ( with the Sun in the center)

Nicolaus Copernicus
Claudius Ptolemy
Aristarchus of Samos
Isaak Newton
Aristarchus of Samos was an ancient Greek astronomer and mathematician who presented the first known model that placed the Sun at the center of the known universe with the Earth revolving around it. He was also the first one to deduce the rotation of earth on its axis. His astronomical ideas were often rejected in favor of the incorrect geocentric theories of Aristotle and Ptolemy. Nicolaus Copernicus attributed the heliocentric theory to Aristarchus.
