The Scientific Revolution and the Enlightenment By kyle seo,Conrad vuong, and domonick marshall

The scientific revolution was the development of mathematics, physics, astronomy, biology, and chemistry. This started in 1543. One thing from the Renaissance that influenced this is scholars rediscovered the cultures of ancient Greece and Rome which made advances in medicine, astronomy, and mathematics. One thing from the age of exploration that influenced the scientific revolution is that Europeans started to question existing knowledge. One important discovery in astronomy by Kepler is that the sun is the center of the solar system and the Earth and other planets orbit around the sun. In other words, the Scientific Revolution made the discovery about the solar system and their behavioral orbit around the sun. This is important because without it, we wouldn't know about how the planets behave and that the Sun is the center of the galaxy. We still use this information today to research about other planets and if they are habitable or not. Newton's law of gravity supported that planets orbit the sun through gravity. This is influential by people knowing how days and years pass. Some scientific inventions that were important are the telescope, barometer, microscope, and the thermometer. These inventions were very influential by people being able to see far away, being able to see small objects, being able to measure the air pressure, and being able to check the temperature. Some important discoveries Galileo made was looking at the moons surface, observing Venus and getting a look at the universe. This was influential because it allowed people to know more at astronomy and space. Copernicus's heliocentric theory was very influential. He figured out that the Earth turns on its own axis. Also figured out that it takes 24 hours for Earth to make one full rotation. These discoveries and thoughts show synergy because these people built off of each others ideas such as Kepler built off of Copernicus's idea about the heliocentric Theory. Newton, Galileo, Copernicus, and Kepler's discoveries influenced the Medieval World and the modern day by giving people further knowledge and education.

The Enlightenment happened in between the late 1600 and the late 1700. The Enlightenment was the revolution of science, philosophy, society and politics. The Enlightenment and scientific revolution both gives people certain rights, and thought about forming natural laws. Some things that influenced the Enlightenment was the scientific revolution, the Renaissance, Reformation, and early Greeks and Romans. Some people that contributed to the Enlightenment were John Locke, Baron de Montesquieu, and the Founding Fathers. They contributed many different ideas that helped shape and influence life today and in the Medieval Times. Government had to follow many rules that benefited other people in the Enlightenment; if they had not, they could've been overthrown. During the Enlightenment many new ideas were made. Some of them were that the Enlightenment brought were that they believed that humans were able to seek the truth for themselves. Also they said right and wrong should be based on rational insight. Further more, they believed government must respect individual rights that other people had to follow.
