# The Scientific Revolution

### By: Hailey K. 1st

## How is that change evidenced in today's modern society?

## Who were the people associated with the change?

## Nicolaus Copernicus He was a polished astronomer and mathematician. He claimed the geocentric model didn't explain the moments of the sun, moon, and plants. After studying this problem for 30 years, he proposed a new model of the universe called the Heliocentric model. | ## Johannes Kepler Kepler was a graduate from The University of Linz. His fields were astronomy, astrology, mathematics, and natural philosophy. He proved through his observations that the heliocentric model of the universe was in fact true. He also proposed three laws of planetary motion * Planets move in elliptical orbits around the sun. * Planets move more rapidly as their orbits approach the sun. * The time it takes a planet to orbit the sun is proportional to its distance from the sun. | ## Galileo Galiei He was a Italian math professor who set out to prove many of Aristotle's theories about nature wrong. * found objects accelerate at a predictable and fixed rate. *Proved that heavy objects fall at the same rate as lighter ones. *Galileo made improvements to the telescope and was one of the first to improve to enough to use it to observe the sky. |

## Nicolaus Copernicus

## Johannes Kepler

* Planets move in elliptical orbits around the sun.

* Planets move more rapidly as their orbits approach the sun.

* The time it takes a planet to orbit the sun is proportional to its distance from the sun.

## Galileo Galiei

** **__Some of the things he found__

* found objects accelerate at a predictable and fixed rate.

*Proved that heavy objects fall at the same rate as lighter ones.

*Galileo made improvements to the telescope and was one of the first to improve to enough to use it to observe the sky.
