Scientific Revolution Crossword

Type
Crossword
Description

Discoveries in this led to new conceptions of the universe Astronomy
The greatest astronomer of antiquity who lived in the A.D. 100s Ptolemy
This system places Earth at the center of the universe Geocentric
This system places the sun at the center of the universe and offered a more accurate explanation Heliocentric
The mathematician who came up with the heliocentric explanation of the universe Copernicus
A German mathematician who used detailed astronomical data to confirm that the sun was at the center of the universe and also showed that the planets' orbits around the sun were not circular, but rather elliptical Kepler
A mathematician who observed the heavens using a telescope. He discovered: mountains on Earth's moon, four moons revolving around Jupiter, and sunspots Galileo Galilei
Galileo found himself under suspicion by this group Catholic Church
This professor of mathematics defined the three laws of motion that govern the planetary bodies, as well as objects on Earth Isaac Newton
This law explains why the planetary bodies continue their elliptical orbits around the sun. Every object in the universe is attracted to every other object by gravity & explains all motion in the universe. Known as the Universal Law of ________ Gravitation
Greek physician in the A.D. 100s who relied on animal, rather than human dissections, which led to many inaccuracies. Galen
This man accurately described the individual organs and general structure of the human body. Vesalius
This man showed that the heart- and not the liver- was the beginning point for the circulation of blood. He also proved that the same blood flows through the veins and arteries and makes a complete circuit through the body. Harvey
An English aristocratic woman who was critical of the growing belief that humans, through science, were the masters of nature Cavendish
A German astronomer who discovered a comet but was denied the post of an assistant astronomer because she was a woman. Winkelmann
