Kiara A 6th Period
Who Were The People Associated With The Change?
He was an astronomer who explained that stars, earth, and other planets revolve around the sun itself. He created the heliocentric model which was a model of the planets (preferably earth) resolves around the sun. He was banned by the Roman Catholic Church, and died in 1543.
He was certain that math governs planet motions. Also, after Tycho Bache's death, Kepler continued his work. In 1605, he announced the first law which was that planets move in ellipses with the sun in one focus. He died in Regensburg in 1630.
Made his own telescope to discover the outer space theories. He also determined the laws of gravity and explored the laws of motion on earth. He proved that Copernicus work was true, although he was rejected by the Church which put him under house arrest. He died around the age of 40. But after his death, around the 1900s, the Church discovered that Copernicus work was correct and they regret rejecting Galileo.
Sir Isaac Newton
Isaac Newton built upon the earlier work of Copernicus and Galileo and used mathematics to describe gravity as the force that keeps planets revolving around the sun. He also explained that this same force is what causes objects to fall to earth. Newton created the three laws of gravity. Newton died in 1727.
How Did The Change Impact The Society At The Time?
Enlightenment ideas helped to stimulate people's sense of individualism, and the basic belief in equal rights. This in turn led to the Glorious Revolution is Britain, the American Revolution, the French Revolution, and the Latin American Revolutions. Some of these revolutions resulted in government based upon the ideas of the Enlightenment such as, Great Britain and the United States.
How Is That Change Evidence In Today's Modern Society?
The Scientific Revolution brought us advancements in Math, Physics, and Biology and influenced how people think today. With these new tools at their disposal, European intellectuals were able to unlock the secrets of the nature, as well as the very universe itself. Among the most notable of the European intellectuals during the Scientific Revolution were Galileo, whose discoveries regarding our solar system still hold true today.
