Galileo Galilee

Italy, 1564-1642

He was an arrogant Catholic priest. Despite that,
he had a daughter. He had built his own telescope,
Pointed it toward things and wrote about them.
He discovered moons around Jupiter, something
very strange, turned out to be rings, around Saturn,
phases of Venus, stains on the sun, and many small
craters on the moon. In the process, he revolutionized
science and died while he was blind and
under a house arrest.

Historic moment:
"Stop whining! the world does not move
around you!" Galileo mom
"Bummer! Let's find out if she's right,"
Young Galileo
