what was the change of the scientific revolution?

The change in astronomy was that people accepted that the sun rather than the earth was the center of the universe.He believed that the earth was the center of the universe and the sun, the moon, and the other planets revolved around the earth. This theory could by prove by human observation, but it failed to explain the path of the planets. The first challenge to Ptolemy's cosmology came from Nicolaus Copernicus 1473-1543 who proved that the sun was the center of the universe.

who were the people associated with the change?

Galileo formulated the laws governing the motion of material objects. Galileo proposed the theory of inertia, to which a object moves or rests until something outside of it changes its motion.
William Harvey challenged the philosophies of Galen by showing how blood circulates through the human body. Johannes kelper also proved that the heliocentric theory was true.

How did the change impact society at that time?

Economically, many advances were made in Europe during this time. The Scientific Revolution leaded to the discovery of several technologies that became helpful to traders, including constent currency, refillable gift cards, and receipt paper. This made it easier for European citizens to buy and sell products, and even to exchange gifts purchased at fine retail establishments.

how is that change evidenced in todays modern society?

  • 17th century scientists and philosophers were able to connect with members of the mathematical and astronomical communities to backlash advances in all fields.The Scientists realized the failing of medieval experimental methods for their work and felt the need to do new methods (some of which we use today.
  • Academics had reach to a legacy of European, Greek, and Middle Eastern scientific philosophy they could use as a starting point by disproving or building on the theorems.
