## What was the change?

## Who were the people associated with the change?

## Galileo Galileo was a astronomer, physicist, mathematician, inventor, and philosopher.Galileo became interested in optics and astronomy, and in 1609 he built his first telescope and began making observations. The following year he published his first results, where he described the highlands and "seas" of the Moon, four of Jupiter's largest moons, and many newly discovered stars. He also discovered the phases of Venus and sunspots, thereby confirming that the Sun rotates, and that the planets orbit around the Sun, not around the Earth. | ## Isaac Newton Newton mathematician and physicist, one of the foremost scientific intellects of all time. Newton's career was torn between his desire for fame and his fear of criticism. His overwhelming fear of criticism caused him to resist immediate publication of his work. As a consequence Newton often felt compelled to defend his work against plagiarism. One such dispute arose over calculus. Though Newton had been the first to derive calculus as a mathematical approach, Gottfried Leibniz was the first one to widely disseminate the concept throughout Europe. The dispute with Leibniz dominated the last years of his life. Newton died in 1727. | ## Johannes Kepter Johannes believed that planets in the solar system traveled in circular orbits around the Earth.The occasional circles test to planetary paths, but Kepler not only defended the idea that planets orbit the sun, he also showed that their paths were not perfect circles. |

## How did change impact society at the time?

Others thought that the earth was straight because if it was curved people would have been falling off the surface.

## How is that change evidence in today's modern society?

However we also have telescopes in able to look up to the moon or any far objects
