Renaissance Science

This was a time were ancient texts were rediscovered and the invention of printing helped with faster learning and a faster propagation of ideas. Humanists favoured to study humanities than natural philosophy or applied science. Art and science were very intermingled with polymath artists. This age was seen as the "scientific revolution" which was the beginning of the modern age. This age also changed the way people viewed the universe and ways to explain natural phenomenas.
Nicolaus Copernicus wrote a book explaining that the Earth moved around the Sun.
This age was also important for the discovery of the scientific method, which focused a new learning about the Earth and the importance of math.
