The Scientific Revolution was a period in history beginning in the late 1500s when scientific ideas began to be put to use by European society. It is generally thought to have begun with a book, On the Revolution of the Heavenly Spheres by Nicolaus Copernicus in 1543. This book was the first to postulate that the Earth was not the center of the Universe.
It was such a striking change from past beliefs that it made many realize that not everything there was to know had yet been learned. The Scientific Revolution would make Europeans the most powerful peoples in the world. It made individuals much more productive by creating machines that could do physical labor by utilizing multiple sources of power from wind and water to coal and steam. More people could be fed, clothed, and housed with less manpower. More wealth could be created in less time for more people.
Innovations in military machines and tactics made Europeans a force to be reckoned with. New methods of trade and commerce made trade with other nations more advantageous, spreading even more knowledge.
