Scientific Revolution

Jalen MI 3rd Period

What was the change?

It was a change in the way people thought. New view of nature emerged, change the Greek view that had dominated science for almost 2,00 years.

Who were the people associated with the change?

How did the change impact society at the time?

Newton laws provided a physical basis for Kepler’s laws, unified celestial and terrestrial physics under one set of laws, and established the problems and methods that dominated much of astronomy and physics for well over a century. Newton could deduce Kepler’s laws of planetary motion. Galileo’s law of free fall is also consistent with Newton’s laws.

How is that change evidenced in today's modern society?

In today modern society we still use the laws and the inventions that was created back then. Newton three laws are still around and still being used in today's schools. We still use the telescope to look at the moon and other planets to understand space.
