Product Description

A brilliant thinker, Galileo relied upon empirical evidence to further the world's understanding of the planets, motion, and general science. Hounded by the Catholic Church, he nevertheless continued to write after his house arrest in his final years, leaving a legacy of mathematical brilliance to the next generation. With photographs, quotes, illustrations and a running timeline, this is a thorough look into the life of a woman who broke through the barriers in her life. 64 pages, indexed, softcover.

Publisher's Description

Galileo made the first effective use of the refracting telescope to discover important new facts about astronomy. His observations led him to support Copernicus's claim that Earth and the other planets circled the sun. This conflicted with the teachings of the Catholic Church, and brought Galileo before the judges of the Inquisition. He spent his final years under house arrest.

Galileo's genius lay in the way he approached scientific problems. He reduced problems to simple terms on the basis of experience and common-sense logic. Then he analyzed and resolved the problems according to simple mathematical descriptions, thus opening the way for the development of modern mathematical physics.
