Scientific Revolution

Kendal H. 2nd Period

What was the change?

It was the change in the understanding of the physical world. This led to scientist questioning the traditional beliefs about the workings of the universe.

Who where the people associated with the change?

How did the change impact society?

The Scientific Revolution resulted from a monumental series of discoveries, especially those in astronomy and related fields, in the 16th and 17th centuries. The impact of these discoveries went far beyond the walls of the laboratory—it created a genuine revolution in the way Western people thought about the world. Participants in this institute will study how the revolution in science and technology was directly linked to revolutions in religion, politics, and society.

How is that change evidence in today`s society?

If it was not for the Scientific Revolution we would not know much about our solar system. We would not have pushed our selves to make life easier through technology. With the help of Newton, Kepler, and Galileo we would not have pushed our selves to shooting a man to space to get answers about the Heliocentric therory. The Scientific Revolution is evident in many ways in society we just have to use our minds to see it.
