What was the change?
Who were the people associated with the change?
After Copernicus, Kepler, and Galileo, changes the thoughts of physics and astronomy Isaac Newton brought inconsideration a single theory of motion. Newton, at the age of 26, was sure that all physical objects were affected equally by the same forces. Moreover Newton's greatest discovery was that the same force ruled motion of the planets and all matter in Earth, and in space. In 1687 Newton released a book, "The Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy. Who would have thought that his book would be known as the most important scientific books of all time.
How did the change impact society at the time?
As all of these ideas and theories began to form not everybody agreed with them. For instance, the church did not agree at all with the theories . The church was in fact frightened at the thoughts, because they went against the thoughts of the church. Moreover, the church was also frightened that the people would go against the churches beliefs. The church believed in God's thoughts and not thoughts that someone "invented". On the other hand, the people started to center the evaluate the theories. Also, they began to spread the word, causing a form of domino effect.
How is that change evidenced in today's modern society?
Throughout all the years many of the thoughts and instruments have been touched on and new thoughts began to expand. To this day there are many things that have been passed down from that time. For example, we still use many of the theories, and many of the instruments created are also in use. The telescope, invented by Galileo is still in use. The telescope was improved but the main basis for it was the fact that Galileo thought of the idea. In addition, the mercury barometer, a device used to show pressure by the height of a column of mercury, was another great invention. One of the most important inventions was the construction of the scientific method, because it is used in modern day. Also, vaccines that were used flourished modern medicine and health. Another important point is Boyle's Law ( volume, temperature, and pressure of gas affect each other). As you can see many things came from the Scientific Revolution.
