What was it?

The Scientific Revolution was the emergence of modern science during the early modern period, when developments in mathematics, physics, astronomy, biology, medicine, and chemistry transformed views of society and nature and got people thinking independently instead of being sheep to the shepard known as the Catholic Church. The scientific revolution began in Europe towards the end of the Renaissance era and continued through the late 18th century, bringing about the intellectual social movement known as the Enlightenment.

How did it impact society at the time?

The Scientific Revolution brought about many new inventions and ideas that changed history as we know it. The many changes in tech and thought made people seriously question the Church and its teachings, Copernicus's observations alone defied the Church in every which way.

How has this affected modern society?

The Scientific Revolution not only drastically affected the lives of people back then, but also now in the modern day. Without people such as Newton, Galileo, or Copernicus, there would most likely be no telescopes, thermometers, submaries, engines, and many other things! Those are just a few of the things that have drastic impacts on our daily lives but lets not forget non-tangible inventions such as Calculus, the planetary model, the theory of gravity, and many others! (lets also not forget that without these, there would not be space travel as we know it).
