For a long time the church were the only people who ran the universities. They taught a geocentric theory and the only people who got an education got it through the Church. Eventually some of these students began to question the teachings of the church. This caused the Church to be angry because if they admitted to being wrong then then they would be questioned on everything that they had been teaching.
Copernicus was the first scientist to question the geocentric theory and he created the heliocentric theory. He was born on February 18th, 1473 in Poland. He wrote a book that told of his discoveries that was called the Commentariolus. He also wrote a final version of his theory in the book, De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium Libri Vi that was published the year of his death.

The Scientific Method
Galileo Galilei was an Italian scientist who was born on February 15th 1564. He studied at the University of Pisa for medicine. He was an astronomer, mathematician, professor, physicist, and philosopher. Galileo wrote many books and taught many things that the church did not approve of. Because of this he was accused of heresy. Some of his achievements were a hydrostatic balance for small things and the law of acceleration
How The Scientific Revolution Impacts Today
Isac Newton was a British scientist who made many scientific advances such as, building a prism that proved white light was, in fact, many colors and also studying the laws of gravity. Newton was born on January 4th, 1643 in the United Kingdom and he died on March 31st, 1727. He created calculus, and also even being the first scientist to become a knight.
Francis Bacon was born on January 22, 1561, in London. He studied at Cambridge and in 1584 he became a member of Parliment. His most well-known discovery was the scientific method but he also wrote a book called the Organum that told of his teachings. He also rose to one of the highest points in government the lord chancellor.
The Scientific Revolution impacts our lives today because it changed not only the way we think about science but also math as well. The Scientific Revolution caused us to no longer to believe in the geocentric theory and instead the heliocentric theory. It also caused calculus to be created along with the laws of gravity and motion and the scientific method which we use to this day.
