  • Beginning in the 1500's new ideas about science changed the way Europeans thought about the world. this period of change was called the Scientific Revolution.

However, in the 1500's and 1600s, scientists such as Galileo showed that the planets revolved around the sun.

  • At first, the discoveries of Copernicus and Galileo upset many Europeans. Over time, however, a new way of thinking about science emerged. Scientists began to observe the world around them and to develop ideas about why things happened. They did experiments to test these ideas. This new way of thinking was called the scientific method.
