What was the change?

The Scientific Revolution changed the way people thought about the physical world around them. The same spirit of inquiry that fueled the Renaissance, led scientists to question traditional beliefs about the workings of the universe. The most prominent scientists of this time include, Copernicus, Galileo, and Issac Newton.

Who were the people associated with the change?

How did the change impact society at the time?

As science assumed greater significance, the question of the role of the Roman Catholic Church in a changing culture became important. While the church opposed the views of many scientists, it benefited from new discoveries that made Renaissance art and architecture possible.

"How is the change evident in today's modern society?'

This change helped our Scientists alot today in the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. What these vintage scientists did was also let is know that the Earth has a Solar System and a Universe. They also let us know that Earth is not the center of our galaxy, and our galaxy is not the center of the universe.
