23 Nicholas Copernicus Developed a mathematical model for a Heliocentric solar system

24 Galileo Galilei ( )  Built the first thermometer and the pendulum clock. Made the first telescopes  First to point a telescope to the sky 1992: The Catholic Church reopened the Galileo Trial and reversed its decision 1632: Publishes “ A Dialogue Concerning Two World Systems ” The book ridicules the geocentric position of the Church 1633: Convicted of heresy by the Church and confined to house arrest for the rest of his life

25 The Moon is Bumpy Galileo the Astronomer Galileo drawings

26 The Sun Has Spots Galileo the Astronomer Galileo drawings “ The Sun is not the perfect and pure sphere expected of the divine heavens ”

27 Saturn has rings Galileo the Astronomer Galileo's sketch of 1616 and engraving in The Assayer of “ …the star of Saturn is not a single star, but is a composite of three, which almost touch each other, never change or move relative to each other, and are arranged in a row, and they are situated in this form: oOo. ” (letter to Cosimo Medici II) Saturn shape seems to vary with time

28 Philosophy

29 Nicolo Machiavelli  “ To be feared is better than to be loved ”  Political ends justify the means - justice is secondary to control

34 Historical Figures & Events Lorenzo de Medici ( ) Gutenberg Bible (1454) Martin Luther ( ) Henry VIII ( ) First voyage of Columbus (1492) Luther posts his Ninety-Five Theses (1517) Church of England separates from Papacy (1534) Council of Trent (1545) William Shakespeare ( )

35 The Copernican Revolution 1.Copernicus ( ) revived the idea of a Sun-centered solar system model: However, like Aristarchus, Copernicus’s model was not accurate enough to convince many people. 2.Tycho Brahe ( ) made accurate (arcminutes) nake-eye measurement of planet motion Tycho believed that planets must circle the Sun, but his failure to detect stellar parallax forced him to put the Earth at the center of the system, with the Sun orbiting the Earth, and the planets orbit the Sun. 3.Johannes Kepler ( ) were able to make accurate prediction with his heliocentric model of planetary orbits, agreeing with Tyco ’ s observation Kepler’s initial failure (using prefect circular orbits) to match Tyco’s observation led him to adopt a model with elliptical planetary orbit. 4.Galileo Galilei ’ s ( ) telescopic observations helped solidify the heliocentric view of the solar system.

36 Symmetry – correct proportion of body parts, grouping of figures so that they are the same on both sides.
