Who were the people associated with the change?


Newton had a great discovery Newton made a huge impact on astronomy defining the laws of motion.His great discovery was the same force ruled motion and all matter on earth in space. Newton came up with the law of universal gravitation which is every object attracts to other objects. Newton published his work in a book called " The Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy" . As legend says Newton discovered gravity when he saw a apple fall.

How did the change impact society at the time?

The scientific revolution started a trend leaning away from the church since a scientific method for discovery was established that allowed for people to think in ways that did not agree with the church. People were using logic for theories that could be proved, not just believed. This made a big impact on people, especially in respect to how they viewed religion.The church feared reason as an enemy of faith, but eventually began to embrace some of the achievements of the Scientific Revolution later on.

How is that change evidenced in today's society?

Thanks to these great scientist we understand the universe and how it works with their discoveries. In today's society we use the new technologies of the Revolution like the microscope, starry messenger,barometer, and also the scientific method.Now that we know how the universe words we can study on other things out there using the method. Telescope went from seeing far away things to seeing teeny tiny things. Throughout the centuries the interventions improved for today's society making it easy but there's plenty more to learn.
