His father was an established musician who made many important comtributions to the theory and practice of music in his time. He may have used galileo in his expirements on pitch and the tension of strings. Although his father preformed these expirements, he always looked up to him as a role model. Galileo had seven siblings - Lylia, Maria, Lorenzo, Marsen, Diso, Giovani, and Lakel. Biological information Early life; From his earliest childhood, Galileo - the oldest of his siblings - was remarkable for his intellectual apptitude and as well for mechanical invention. His favourtie past time was building his own original yet ingenious toys. i am awesome it fgdhfghn SUPER DOOPER soooo stealthy :)

Galileo was never married. However, he did have a brief relationship with Marina Gamba, a woman he met on one of his many trips to Venice. Marina lived in Galileo's house in Padua where she bore him three childrentwo daugters and a son. His two daughters, Virginia and Livia, were both put in convents where they became, respectively, Sister Maria Celeste and Sister Arcangela. In 1610, Galileo moved from Padua to Florence where he took a position at the Court of the Medici family. He left his son, Vincenzio, with Marina Gamba in Padua. In 1613, Marina married Giovanni Bartoluzzi, and Vincenzio joined his father in Florence.
Personal Life Math Contributions Galileo has been called the "father of modern observational astronomy", the 'father of modern physics', the 'father of science' and 'the father of modern science'. The motion of uniformly accelerated objects, taught in nearly all high-school and colledge physics courses, was studied by Galileo as the subject of kinematics.His contributions to observational astronomy include the telescope, the confirmation of the phases of Venus, the discovery of the four largest satelites of Jupiter( named the Galilean moons out of honour), and the observations and analasys of sunspots. Galileo also worked in applied science, improving the design of the compass. He was also the first to invent a telescope which helped astronomy further beyond knowledge.
