Transcript of Team 2 Galileo

Galileo Galilei
By: Caroline Baker, Garrett Bass, and LaShawn Wilson
Galileo was a astronomer, mathematician, Italian physicist, and philosopher. He was born in
Pisa, Italy. He died in Arcetri,Italy. Galileo was one of the first Europeans to observe sunspots. His contributions too astronomy confirmed that Venus had phases similar to the moons. At first Galileo thought that Neptune was a giant star much like the sun but without the heat.
Galileo had many pieces of work that were published like Letters On Sunspots.
Galileo thought that both planets and stars were round. Galileo made a method for measuring a star without a telescope. At first Galileo thought that Neptune was a giant star like the sun, but without the heat.
Astronomy Continued
Galileo first thought that Saturn's ring was a bunch of small planets but later in his studies he found out that the ring was not a bunch of planets, but something different. In 1610 Galileo observed through his telescope that three stars were in a row near Jupiter, those stars were clearly visible through a telescope. Galileo also discovered Venuses phases. Venuses phases are much like the moon's.
Interesting Facts
Galileo made contributions to what is today's technology. Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking (two brilliant men just like Galileo) believed he was one of the fathers of modern science. Galileo was never married but had children. One of the first men to observe sunspots first thought that it was a transit from mars making Galileo one of the first men to realize what a sunspot is.

Galileo Galilei
By: Sidney Povish, Hayden Campbell and Scarlett Wright
Galileo was born in 1564, around the renaissance era, in Pisa Italy.
This was a time when there were many geniuses like Nicolaus Copernicus and Leonardo Da Vicni were at large. At the age of 24 Galileo was a renowned mathematician throughout Italy. He is said to be the father of many things, including astronomy, physics and science.
Early Life
Galileo Galilei was born in the Tuskan reigion of Pisa Italy on February 15th, 1564. Galileo was the son of Vincenzo Galilei and Giulia Ammannati. His father was a mathematician and a musician. Galileo had two sisters but they were both sent to a convent. Galileo was home schooled when he was very young. He later attended the University Of Pisa.
A lot of Galileo's inventions were because he needed money to support his family and to give money to his sisters. Galileo invented a simple thermometer that could register variations in temperature but he did not make any money off of it. In 1596 he invented a compass for aiming cannonballs. The compass was also use in civilian use in land surveying. He made a good amount of money off of this new invention and he sold some of these compasses to his students. Many of them were wealthy members of aristocracy.
Galileo was very important he invented things,that helped our society to become more advanced in technology. Helped us to know more about our planets and our solar system by inventing the telescope. He also helped us overcome thinking that the earth was flat. Then realized using his invention of the telescope and noticed that the earth was round.
This picture shows the telescope that was invented and the mountains AKA: craters on the moon which was found out using the telescope that was invented

Galileo became blind at the age of 72. When he became blind, it affected how he had the job of doing observations with his thermoscope. Galileo died at Arcetri in 1642. This is the year Issac Newton was born leaving behind his resourceful creations.
