The Scientific Revolution and enlightenment By Ronald Gerkus

In the Scientific Revolution and Enlightenment, Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, and Newton were all important people that created or thought of things that affect us in our daily lives today. The scientific revolution and enlightenment were greatly affected by synergy which can help build greater ideas than one person can do by themselves.

Scientific Revolution:

Nicolaus Copernicus was a Prussian mathematician, astronomer, physician, classics scholar, translator, governor, diplomat, and economist. He developed the quantity theory of money, something that was and is a very important part of economy. But his most famous discovery is that the sun is in the middle of the universe, not the earth.

Galileo Galilei was an Italian polymath: astronomer, physicist, engineer, philosopher, and mathematician. He played a major part in the scientific revolution. He confirmed Venus by a telescope and studied its moons which were named Galilean moons after him, he also studied the sunspots. Galileo Galilei was also important in military because he created a military compass and other tools that were important not just for military.

Johannes Kepler was a German mathematician, astronomer, and astrologer. He is best known for his laws of planetary motion, based on his works Astronomia nova, Harmonices Mundi, and Epitome of Copernican Astronomy. These works of his greatly affected not only the scientific revolution but Isaac Newton's theory of universal gravitation; which is an example of synergy.

Isaac Newton was an English mathematician, astronomer, and physicist. His book Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica ("Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy"), published in 1687, was very important to basic mechanics of gravity. He also built the first practical reflecting telescope. He also calculated the theoretical speed of sound, developed the laws of color, and the law of cooling which greatly influenced other scientists or inventors. Space adventure would never exist without him due to his laws of physics.

These people greatly affected our modern day sciences and a significant part of the scientific revolution. The scientific revolution and renaissance are related because they were the foundation of the enlightenment. The enlightenment was an age of philosophy of religion, government and many other things. These things greatly affect our daily lives today because some of the religions we follow today might not have been created if the Enlightenment didn't happen. The scientific revolution is also closely similar to the enlightenment because during the enlightenment a lot of scientific discoveries were created due to very significant people using synergy to build off each others ideas, knowledge, and skills.
