Science and Technology of the Past

Science and Technology has evolved a lot since the Elizabethan Era


The Start of Science

The Elizabethan Era was the beginning of many sciences. At this time, scientists were figuring out stars, space, and the human body. They realized all the planets orbit the Earth. Scientist Kepler, and Copernicus's hypothesis, let them work out the mathematical laws which governed the movements of the planets. Meanwhile a big part of studying the stars involves telescopes. Galieo, a Italian scientist made one of the first telescopes. This made seeing the stars and seeing what's in space much easier. Vesalius, and Harvey introduced human anatomy. They discovered the dissection of the human body. This helped with surgery or simply just to see what the body was made of.
