Remains of Copernicus finally identified

After two centuries, scientists believe that they have found the final resting place of Nicolaus Copernicus, the father of modern astronomy. They also believe he had blue eyes.

Four years ago, archaeologists from Poland found skeletal remains under the St. Cross altar of the Roman Catholic cathedral in Frombork, Poland. Since then, geneticists from Poland and Sweden have studied the remains and have concluded they are in fact those of the astronomer. They also believe he had blue eyes, light skin and fair hair.
