Who were the people asssociated with the change?
What was the change?
The scientific revolution changed the way people thought about the world around them. It introduced people to the scientific method teaching people the proper way to experiment. It showed us that the universe revolved around the sun and not the earth as people believed back then. Also many laws of motion and physics. We still use these findings in today's society.
Copernicus was one of the astronomers in the early 1500s. When everyone believed the earth was the center of the universe he showed us that the sun was. It also went against the theory that a Greek astronomer Ptolemy argued about, the theory that the Earth was a stationary sphere that was in the center of the Universe and that the other planets (including the Sun) was orbiting around the Earth.
Johannes Kepler was the student of Tycho Brahe. He inherited his teachers findings. He came up with two laws of planetary motion. His most famous work was called "Epitome Astronmiae". While on a journey to collect debt he died.
Galileo was an astronomer during the scientific revolution. He discovered four of Jupiter's major moons. He also discovered the sun spots on Venus showing that the sun revolved. He also discovered the principle of inertia.
