Transcript of science
Science of the Renaissance
Used naked eye observations with oversized instruments.
Made a catalog of 1000 stars, most accurate in his time.
Sir Issac Newton
Sir Issac Newton was an English scientist and mathematician.
He discovered laws of physics such as gravity and the light spectrum.
He revolutionized astronomy and biology with compasses and balances, which have been modified and used today.
Keplers first law: planets travel on an elliptical path.
Discovered tides were made by the moon
Brahe's instruments were the most precise instruments before the telescope.
Made detailed observations of the planets' motion.
His observation of Mars later helped Kepler.
Today we still use some of his laws in physics and he also helped to create calculus.
Kepler explained how a telescope should work
Thought up modern theories of inertia that are still used in teachings today.
Believed Earth was fixed in the center of the universe
Newton's laws of motion helped other scientists discover how to get into space.
Newton made the first telescope and proved that the planets revolve around the sun.
Tycho Brahe Extras!
Tycho went to the University of Copenhagen at age 13.
His nose was made from gold, silver, and copper, after he was in a duel.
The middle finger of Galileo’s right hand is currently on exhibition at the Museo Galileo in Florence, Italy.
Kepler suggested that the sun rotates
Tycho also had a pet moose as an adult.
He has two craters named after him.
Johannes Kepler Extras!
Newton was an extremely religious person but people use his discoveries to try to disprove God.
He created both nearsighted and farsighted glasses
Considered to be the founder of modern observational astronomy.
Newton predicted that the world will end in 2060.
Newton's dog knocked over a candle setting fire to twenty years of research.
Inventor of the Keplerian Telescope.
NASA's planet-locating telescope was named after him.
Newton only said one sentence as a politician, asking an usher to close a window.
Galileo was wrong about how tides were caused.
Made important advances in geometry.
Found that each planet moves in an elliptical orbit.
He formulated the universal laws for acceleration.
He did not invent the telescope, but improved upon the thought of it.
Came up with theories of heliocentrism
Galileo wasn't cleared of any wrongdoing by the Church until 1992, 350 years after his death.
Galileo discovered the four moons of Jupiter.
Connection to the Renaissance and Today
Many of the theories made by these scientists were proven correct and are used in teachings today.
Newton's Laws are the basic of physical science and physics.
Galileo's heliocentrism was proven correct and helped with the basis of modern astronomy
Kepler's geometry is still taught today
Brahe played a crucial role in geodesy and cartography, which deals with maps and earth science related math
