Galileo's Education
Galileo was actually a monk at first. When his father showed displeasureof the subject, he went to go off to the university of Pisa and studided medicine, like his father wanted. He almost flunked out of the university in mathematics. When he got his tutor, that all changed for the best.

How His Inventions Help Us
Galileo's inventions help us so much in modern math and science. His telescopes led to a revolution in it's franchise, sunspots can help us learn about our sun and when it will go out, and we have knowledge about the world we live in.

I chose Galileo to do my project on for a few reasons. The first reason why I chose him was about his discoveries. I find them all very interesting. The second reason I chose him is becuse I like Space as well.
