💖 what was the change?
The scientific revolution was a great change that was based in science. Hence the name is scientific revolution. It was mainly based upon astronomy, But it also had physics,math ,and biology. It was from 1500-1700. The change was basically the new ideas and concepts introduced at the time. People started to basically believe they can create and do anything. Back then they were basically new inventions but today we see them as great impact.
💖 who were the people associated with the change?
There were many people associated with the change. The five main people were Nicolaus Copernicus, Johannes Kepler, Galileo Galilei, Isaac Newton, and William Harvey. Copernicus and Kepler well known for discovering and proving the heliocentric theory. The heliocentric theory stated that earth and planets revolve around the Sun not earth. Galileo Galilei was known for improving the telescope. Isaac Newton was major for discovering gravity. William showed how the heart pumps blood through the body. They were important figures in the Scientific Revolution. Mainly because they helped us understand things around us and about us.
💖 how did the change impact the society at the time and modern society?
Back then the impact wasn't as good as it is today. Apparently there were disturbances and crazy ideas. The church had a great impact on people because everything they said the people believed. Hence the reason they didn't find any interest in the new contributions. Despite that thanks to the major contributions we know the things we know today. Many people have jobs based on astronomy, biology, mathematics and none of those jobs would be possible without the Scientific Revolution. The contributions show us things around us and about us and that is how the impact our modern society. We have a better informed world.
Galileo was a Italian astronomer. He improved the telescope, he made observations about the moon and solar system, also he created the law of inertia, and lastly he perfected the scientific method.
