Scientific Revolution

World History

what was the change?

People thought the plante earth was the center of the universe.The scientific revolution changed the way people thought about the universe and also the scientific method was used alot more.Issac Newton and Nicoluas Copernicus changed the thought about the church and the the thought we had towards the universe.They made huge impacts in there time and will be remembered fo there impacts.

Nicoluas Copernicus

Nicolaus Copernicus was an astronomer who was against the geocentric theory.He knew that the geocentric didnt explian the movement of the sun,moon and the other planets.He came up with the heliocentric which said that the sun was the center of the universe and the other planets orbitingaround the sun.However,the church was unhappy that nicolaus came up with this model.

Isaac Newton

Isaac Newton was physicist who advanced math and science into the modern era.He was sitting below a apple tree with a book in his hands.Then an apple fell and it his head.He was very curious why the apple and other objects fall to the ground.Isaac Newton came with the law of universal gravitation and mathematical principles of natural philosophy.Isaac made a hug impact at his time.

Galileo Galilei

galileo obsevered the skies with a homemade telescope and proved coperninus theory right.Also a math professor.He wanted to prove Aristole's theories about nature wrong.

He was then later put in house arrest until his death by the church because he signed a confession saying that the heliocentric model was wrong.I think putting him in hose arrest until he died was a little to much.
