Learn What Changed Our Thinking about the Natural World!!

A captivating journey through the revolution that changed our thinking about the Universe and the Natural World.

Discover why the Scientific Revolution witnessed a shift from blind faith and mysticism to a revolutionary new way of thinking about matter, the universe, and humanity.

The 50 minute multimedia presentation traces the course of the Scientific Revolution from the 1540's, when Europe struggles to emerge from the long shadows of Aristotelianism, the prevailing science for fifteen hundred years. Witness the birth of the Scientific Revolution in the theories of Nicolaus Copernicus, whose suggestion that the sun was at the center of the universe turned the European intellectual world on its head. Gaze at the heavens with Galileo Galilei - the father of modern astronomy - whose telescope allowed scientists finally to test their theories about the universe. Herald the achievements of the great physicists, especially those of Sir Isaac Newton - perhaps the greatest figure of the Scientific Revolution. Explore Newton's theories about motion, gravity, and the universe, and understand why modern science is built on the shoulders of Newton.
