Galileo has found lots of things about the world and invented lots of things. First, he created the telescope based on a spyglass. He also found that the moon is pitted, and discovered four of Jupiter's moons. Third, he discovered that Saturn has rings, the largest rings in the solar system. He found that venus has phases like Earth's moon does. Finally, he discovered that if there is no air resistance, everything falls at the same rate, no matter the object's mass.
Galileo was charged guilty of heresy and was imprisoned for life. Heresy is being opposed to church teaching, and was a crime at the time. He died January 8, 1642. Before death, Galileo wrote a book but was not able to publish it. After death, the book was smuggled out of Italy and into Holland.
