Scientific Revolution

By Andre H. 2nd

What was the change?

The way people looked at things and how they thought. People start to move away from the church, and move towards "science." They where trying understand the universe. They didn't want to believe that one man created the world in seven days.

Who were the people associated with this change?


Newton was an English physicist and mathematician. He created the laws of gravity. also he created the laws of motion. Newton also created the laws of universal gravitation. Isaac Newton's laws of motion were proved correct in 1758 by Edmond Halley.

How did the change impact society at the time?

People didn't want to believe that the Earth wasn't in the center of the universe. They were use to here all the stuff that was is the bible. They were to scared to accept these new theories about gravity and that other planets have there own moons. The church convicted people who had made these theories. Astronomers like Galileo.

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

In today's modern society we are still using some of the inventions from the scientific revolution like the compass. Til this day we still believe that the sun is in the center of the universe, Newton's law of motion, and planets revole around the sun. These theories have turn into fact. We learn this things in school to explain so of the pheomias of the world, the universe.
