Thermometer was invented by Galileo Galilei， in 1593.
It consists of a sealed glass tube that filled with water, and several floating bubbles filled with colored water.
There is a little tag attached to each bubble to indicate the temperature.
The bubble will move up and down since the buoyancy of water is changed as the temperature changed.
The lowest bubble indicated the temperature.
Nowadays, Galileo’s invention is called the Galileo Thermometer, and mostly used as decoration.
