GALILEO
GALILEI
“THE FATHER OF MODERN SCIENCE”
By: Jeremy M and Elizabeth S
LIFE AND DEATH
•
Galileo was born in Pisa, Italy February 15, 1564.
•
Declared deceased in 1642.
FUN FACTS
•
Galileo is often called the “Father of Modern Science” because he promoted the modern
form of experiments before concluding theories.
•
The Catholic Church persecuted Galileo for his support of Copernicus’ Heliocentric theory,
wherein the Earth orbited the Sun instead of the Sun orbiting the Earth as the Church
taught. Seen as a heretic, he tried to appeal to the oppressive church by stating that
“Mathematics is the language in which God has written the universe.”
•
Before going to the University of Pisa, Galileo had, at first, aspired to become a monk. His
father resented this idea because monks are hardly paid, instead he pressured him to
study medicine.

EDUCATION
•
Galileo had, at first, studied in a Jesuit monastery in Pisa since he was eleven, but after
being pressured to pursuit medicine by his father he eventually agreed to enroll in the
University of Pisa by the time he was seventeen.
•
Galileo showed only an interest in mathematics while in school, he was flunking every
other class. This led him to leave the University without his diploma and with a
disappointed father. However, his curiosity in mathematics led him to aspire to greatness
in life.
GALILEO’S ACCOMPLISHMENTS
•
At age 20 Galileo notices a lamp swinging overhead while inside a cathedral, curious, he
counted his pule to the swinging of the lamp and noticed that each time it swung it took
exactly the same amount of time to reach the other side. This initial curiosity led him to
discover the Pendulum.
•
Galileo was the first man to perfect a telescope to pierce the sky and peer into the
surrounding heavens above. His findings pave the way for modern astronomy.
•
He also invented the thermometer along with many other inventions such as; the
hydrostatic balance and the canon sector, which allowed artillery regiments to calculate
their trajectory and better aim their volleys.
•
Galileo’s improvements in astronomical observations led him to prove Copernicus’s
heliocentric theory.
