Unfortunately, the Greeks take credit for this discovery, although it was Aryabhata who discovered a formula demonstrating that the Earth rotates on its axis. He then calculated the circumference of the Earth as 39736 kilometers by calculating the value of pi to be 3.1416. Scientists have calculated that the exact circumference of the Earth is 40,075 kilometers. That is really awesome!
