What was the scientific revolution?
Galileo Galileo was born in Pisa, Italy on February 15, 1564. Galileo is known for founder of modern science. he was one of the first people to examine the heavens with a telescope. he also made breakthrough discoveries in the study of motion. he entered the University of Pisa to study medicine but later switched to mathematics. Galileo was interested in studying the effect of forces on the motion of bodies. In 1609 Galileo learned of the invention of the telescope in the Netherlands. He later built his own version. The telescope allowed Galileo to make discoveries about space. he discovered four moons revolving around the planet Jupiter. Galileo also made that the sun is the center of the solar system. Galileo is important for us because after all that he said, every scientist and philosopher stared to think of new ideas. One of Galileo's ideas was the sun in the center of the solar system before Galileo's theory, every scientist and philosopher believed that the earth was the center of the solar system.
The polish astronomer Nicolas Copernicus is often considered the founder of modern astronomy. His studied led to his theory that earth and the other planets revolve around the sun. Copernicus said that the geocentric model didn't explain the movement of sun, moon, and planets. he studying 30 years for finding this problem. after finding this problem he proposed a new model for the universe. this is called universe model. in the heliocentric model, the sun is in the center of the universe. this was the first new model of the universe in 2000 years. Copernicus is important because he was the first to suggest that the galaxy did not revolve around the earth, but instead around the sun.
The German astronomer Johannes Kepler was one of the chief founders of modern astronomy because of his discovery of three basic laws underlying the motion of planets.also the Johannes Kepler proved the heliocentric model of the universe was true. Johannes is important because he discovered that each visible planet in our solar system moves in an elliptical orbit.
How is that change impact society at the time?
The scientific revolutions had a deep social impact, by changing the world and the way of life through the development of new technologies, and shaping a new social order. The course will promote open discussion on the social contexts and socio-cultural impacts of the major scientific discoveries. Scientific knowledge and the procedures used by scientists influence the way many individuals in society think about themselves, others, and the environment, and deeply influence the way of life of common people through technology.
