People who associated with the change

How did the change impact society at the time

How people reacted

These types of changes caused the churches to get upset about these new ideas.

Some where even punished for the ideas they came up with.

How is that evidenced in today's modern society

We still use most of these theories created. We use the scientific method when trying to figure out a question or even to see if our own theory is accurate. We also still believe and use the Copernicus theory. We study how the Earth moves around the sun with the other planets. Also how all the planets orbit in an oval shape instead of a circle.
