    Nicolaus Copernicus

    Nicolaus Copernicus
    Copernican heliocentrism is the name given to the astronomical model developed by Nicolaus Copernicus. It positioned the Sun near the center of the Universe, motionless, with Earth and the other planets rotating around it in circular paths modified by epicycles and at uniform speeds. This helps engineers and people working with space to understand the sun and how its effects different plants.

    Andreas Vesalius

    Andreas Vesalius
    Andreas Vesalius was a anatomist, physician, and author of one of the most influential books on human anatomy. He is considered the father of modern anatomy and his work the beginning of modern medicine. This helped and changed people in the world today to understand human anatomy better to help sicknesses and diseases.
  • Johannes Kepler

    Johannes Kepler
    For six years, Kepler taught arithmetic, geometry, Virgil, and rhetoric. He discovered three major laws of planetary motion, conventionally designated as follows: (1) the planets move in elliptical orbits with the Sun at one focus; (2) the “area law” and (3)the “harmonic law”. This has an important impact on the world because without Keplers discoveries today we would not be able to do things that involves planetary motion.
  • Galileo Galilei

    Galileo Galilei
    Galileo Galilei built his first telescope and succeeded. His telescope begin at magnifications of approximately 3X and 10X, the most powerful achieving a magnification of 30X, an instrument he eventually gave away as a gift. Without Galileis invention of the telescope we would not be able see shooting stars or find more things about the world. This challenged people to dicover new things to make the telescope better.
  • William Harvey

This has helped people throughout the years learn bout the human body to help doctors understand more.
  • Rene Descartes

  • Antoine Lavoisier

    Antoine Lavoisier
    A french chemist who founded modern chemistry. He demolished the phlogiston theory by demonstrating the function of oxygen in combustion. He named oxygen and hydrogen, and showed how they combined to form water. This is important because without knowing this people would not know what else two elements could create.
  • Joseph Priestley

    Joseph Priestley
