The Scientific Revolution

Emma J.P. 3rd Period

What was the change ?

The scientific revolution was a time when people began to show more interest in the world around them. A time when people no longer focused on religion, but on the why & how of anything, & everything, because people wanted a clearer way to understand their surroundings.


Who were the people associated with the change ?

How did the change impact society at the time ?

At the time, the people's new focal point was science, astronomy in particular. As science became more advanced, the church began to get less attention, but Galileo & Copernicus challenged it. The church teachings implied that the Earth was in the center of the universe, but Copernicus & Galileo observed differently.

How is that change evident in today's modern society ?

In our world today, many of us would agree with the Copernican theory, saying that the sun ,is indeed, in the center of several orbiting planets. Modern society has made more advanced models of the technology used, like telescopes. We now have an idea of what space is like, and because of that we can study our universe more & more, and still continue to do so. There are satellites and telescopes around the other planets in our solar system , and without the help of these scientists ,we wouldn't be as advanced as we are today! :)
