Impact on Science and Math
-Galileo learned the law of the pendulum and eventually that was used to regulate clocks.
-He was the first astronomer to learn what the Universe is made of.
-Galileo discovered that everything falls at the speed.
He had tested one light object and one heavy object. Both of them had hit the ground at the same time.
-All of his work that he discovered was true and he was able to prove to anyone that what he was saying was correct.

Impact On Society
-During his time, Galilio contributed a lot to observational astronomy and applied science to technology. He learned a lot about Jupiter and the observation and and analysis of sunspots. He was put under house arrest when he wrote Two New Sciences where he summarized kinematics and strength of materials.
-Galileo has impacted society today because of his telescope, allowing more exact math calculations, and has really changed the astronomical observation.
