Scientific Revolution

The Scientific Revolution was a series of events that marked the emergence of modern science during the early modern period, when developments in mathematics, physics, astronomy, biology (including human anatomy) and chemistry transformed the views of society about nature. The Scientific Revolution took place in Europe towards the end of the Renaissance period and continued through the late 18th century, influencing the intellectual social movement known as the Enlightenment. While its dates are debated, the publication in 1543 of Nicolaus Copernicus's De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres) is often cited as marking the beginning of the Scientific Revolution.

Brief Description

The Scientific Revolution was a period during the mid 1500's where new theories about the physical universe emerged. Three main people who contributed to this revolution were: Copernicus who came up with the Heliocentric Theory, Galileo whom was an astronomer that built the first telescope and further proved the Heliocentric Theory, and Isaac Newton whom established the theory of a force that kept the planets in their orbits around the sun (known as gravity).
