Are Indian discoveries there in the astronomy in the early days before other country men?

In the olden days, many things were found by Indian people scientists like Aryabhata before the Romans and Greeks. Before thousand years, the astronomy scientists had discovered that sun is a star and other stars are far away from the sun before Nicolaus and Copernicus.

The book written by Aryabhata named Aryabhattium is translated to Latin in 13th century.  The Europe mathematicians used this book to calculate the cubicles and in the 7th century, Brahmagupta estimated the size of the earth. And these estimations are very close to the estimations made in this generation. Brahmagupta also supported aryabhatta that there is some energy which makes the things fall on the earth.

And before hundred years only, Varahamihira had said that there is some attractive forces which attracts the things towards earth and makes the planets rotate without colliding. And so the Indians have found the gravitational force before the Newton.
