I wonder which way is faster to get home... bus or bike? The bus goes fast but stops a lot, and a bike is slower but doesn't stop.
Galileo believed that the sun was the center of the solar system, which was found by Copernicus (Heliocentric). The church didn't want Galileo to spread Heliocentrism around because it went against the bible. They threatened him with Excommunication and torture. Eventually, the church put Galileo under house arrest towards the end of his life.
Isaac Newton discovered that light is composed of the colors of the rainbow by shining light through a glass triangle (a prisim). He also discovered that the Earth wasn't perfectly round. There is a story that one day he was sitting underneath a apple tree and one of the apples fell on his head and everything just clicked.
Church vs Science
Stop spreading the heliocentric theory around! We will torture and excommunicate you if you continue.
Francis Bacon developed the Scientific Method. The 1st step is to begin with a question, the 2nd is form a hypothesis and to test it, the last step to analyze data and come up with a conclusion.
Rev. Impacts On Today
Copernicus discovered the Heliocentric theory. Heliocentrism means that you believe that the sun was the center of the solar system. He was known for studying the universe, stars, and planets. Sadly, He died due to a stroke at the age of 70.
The church did not like when science became the new thing. Galileo presented to them the theories and ideas that he had come up with but they didn't agree. They told Galileo to stop spreading Heliocentrism around and to have people focus more on church and the bible, but he didn't. They threatened him with exo=communication and torture. Near the end of his life, he was out under house arrest.
The Scientific Revolution impacted our world today in a lot of different ways. New truths and research were discovered that helped us create some of our biggest things now. Ptolemy's geocentric theory was brought into question once Copernicus's heliocentric theory became bigger. Isaac Newton brought a lot to the table by figuring out motion, gravity, and light. Bacon also helped by coming up with the scientific method.
