The Scientific Revolution was a very important time in history. It happened right after the Middle Ages, about the same time as the Renaissance and Protestant Reformation. If the Scientific Revolution didn't happen, we still might think that light is clear or that the earth is the center of the universe! Some major discoveries and inventions happened at this time, too.

 For example, when the sun, not the earth, was realized as the center of the solar system by Copernicus and Galileo. We wouldn't have known this until satellites and spacecraft were developed and launched. Isaac Newton proposed the theory that light is not clear, but all of the colors of the rainbow, and when mixed, the color white. Or when Galileo invented the telescope, giving much more evidence for his sun-centered solar system theories, and so many more details about the moon, including how it has craters and is not smooth. The telescope even showed that Jupiter has four major moons. Without the telescope being invented, all of these things would not have been found out until long later. Can you think of anymore Scientific Revolution achievements? I sure can! But unfortunately, the list would go on so long that you would probably fall asleep while reading this.
