The Life and Style of Galileo Galilei
Transcript of The Life and Style of Galileo Galilei
Looking at the moon, he noticied there were mountains, vallys and craters. Despite what everyone thought, the moon was not a perfectly round ball.
He noticed Mercury and Venus have phases just like the moon, meaning they cirled the Sun, not the Earth.
The four moons around Jupiter shows that not everything circled the Earth
Everything falls at the same speed Discoveries because of his discoveries, Albert Einstein called Galileo the "Father of Modern Science". After the first spacecraft was planned to be launched to Jupiter, it was released that the ship would be called "Galileo spacecraft". Recognition Prison Life “Alas! Your dear friend and servant Galileo has been for the last month hopelessly blind; so that this heaven, this earth, this universe, which I by my marvelous discoveries and clear demonstrations had enlarged a hundred thousand times beyond the belief of the wise men of bygone ages, henceforward for me is shrunk into such a small space as is filled by my own bodily sensations.” Quotation The Roman Catholic Church claimed Galileo committed claims against the church. He was required to deny the theory, and was forced to stay on house arrest till death. Pendulum At 20, Galileo noticed a lamp swinging in the Cathedral of Pisa and noticed a lamp swinging back and forth. He observed and recorded the time it took for each swing. Law of Gravity In correlation with Newton's Law of Gravity, Galileo dropped balls from the Leaning Tower of Pisa that were made of the same material but with different masses. The result of this experiment was that objects reach the ground at the same time, independent of their masses. Jupiter's Moon The use of his telescope gave Galileo the ability to see Jupiter's moons for the first time on January 7, 1610. Heliocentric Theory After being origianally developed by Nicolaus Copernicus, Galileos writing about how the Sun is the center of the Solar system and not the Earth. "Astronomy and Space for Kids."
