Scientific Revolution Letter By:Yeraldyne Molina Galileo, is one of the best scientists in history, he can think and act more fluently than other people. He should be set free, because if you don’t, nobody is going to make another invention that will make your life even better, or the next generations. Galileo has made many discoveries, other people couldn’t even imagine! He noticed that the planets,Mercury and Venus pass through phases just like the Moon. The only way they could do that is, if they circled the Sun, and not the Earth.
Controversy augmented when Nicolaus evolved the heliocentric theory, which was later included in Book I of De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium. A lot of people told Nicolaus that his findings were incorrect and irrelevant because they strongly believed in Claudius 's previous statement. Book I also sketches of the solar system that helps defend the heliocentric theory. An explanation of why we have season is mentioned as well. Book II deals with spherical astronomy, such as celestial coordinates and orbits (Armitage, 1990, pg.
To begin with, Copernicus is by far one of the most important in the Scientific Revolution because he basically started it off. Before Copernicus, Ptolemy believed that the Earth was the center of the universe and all of the planets including the sun and the moon revolved around it. Moreover, according to Copernicus, what appeared to be the movement of the sun and the fixed stars around the earth was really explained by the daily rotation of the earth on it’s axis and the journey of the earth around the sun each year. Copernicus made some research and he found out that Ptolemy was incorrect. Copernicus contradicted Ptolemy’s ideas about the earth being the center of the universe because he made some research and found out that the sun was actually the center of the universe.
In the year of 1905, Albert Einstein published a paper advancing the hypothesis that light energy is carried in discrete quantized packets to explain experimental data from the photoelectric effect. This model added to the advancement of quantum mechanics. c. Reason for listening: This topic is important because people often only think about Einstein’s theory of general relativity, but he offered so much more. d. Credibility: For my informative speech, I have conducted extensive research on the scientific contributions of Albert Einstein. e. Thesis Statement: People view Einstein work as just if he has only contributed a few things to sciences and physics, but he did a greater amount then the majority of people know.
In the same line of thought, does it mean that the universe did not existed before the Big Bang or it just explains science’s limitation? (Davies 52) Another question raised as an objection to the Kalam cosmological argument is that, why do we say that things are expanding, what if they are collapsing? Looking at science we would appreciate that science can change. It is not static, new theories can come up. For instance, the Newtonian theory was replaced by the Einsteinian theory, we moved from geocentricism to heliocentrism.
Or how you will turn out to be? What is time travel you ask? What started this whole time travel stuff you ask? Well all that started by a theory Albert Einstein created. The definition of time travel is simple it is to travel anywhere back or forth to the future or to the past, but some people get the miscalculation of time travel wrong .
Even though he didn’t invent the telescope, he was the first person to use the optical instrument to systematically study space. He also improved the telescope by learning about the device, and in the fall of 1609, he pointed it at the moon, and he discovered that it had craters and mountains. He invented an improved the telescope that let him observe the moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn, the phases of Venus, sunspots, and lunar surface. He also found out that Jupiter had moons. His discoveries disturbed the catholic church, but he preserved through the consequences, and now is a famous person in history.
Throughout history, many people question the norm in favor of their own thinkings and beliefs. Such notable figures include Galileo and Copernicus, two scientists who hypothesized and proven that the Earth is not in the center of the universe. In this instance, Galileo and Copernicus change society’s mind about things it has long thought to be true, by acquiring new scientific knowledge, using logic, and following their intuition. Thus, this shows how science is never absolute, and is always acceptable to changes, as people review their thinkings. Thousands of years ago, people thought that the Earth was located in the center of the Universe.
There has to be a something that is uncaused. Just like newton 's law so is the cosmological argument, there has to be a first cause that uncaused. But, some scientists believe that the universe has existed forever. Yet in 1929 Edwin Hubble, an astronomer at Caltech, made a discovery that proves that the universe did not exist forever. “He measured the redshifts of a number of distant galaxies.
Planets, lives are the natural results of big bang. According to Charles Darwin, the advocate of evolution, evolution processes, including the beginning of the universe, occurred accidentally, meaning that everything we see and we have today is an enormous accident. All the naturally occurring incidents are merely the results of accidents, with nearly no special meaning. Naturalists as a result further interpret that lives of human beings serve the same purpose as their origins—human beings are to no avail. The idea of naturalism can be illustrated by one simple example.
