Galileo was the 1st man to use a telescope to observe the stars and planets.
He was an Italian astronomer, and scientist from 1546 to 1642. He was the 1st one to identify 3 Jupiter moons. He used "science" to determine that the planets in our solar system orbited around the sun, and that some of them had their own moons
which orbit them.
Galileo's telescopic discoveries after 1610 were applauded by Bishops and Cardinals, and Galileo went both to Florence and to Rome as a celebrity. The church disliked him because, he offended the pope .
Galileo, we must not forget, was a provocative and imaginative man, with an established track record of rows and lawsuits behind him. It was when he began to teach Copernicus as the truth, in 1616, that he first got into trouble. For quite simply, from the available evidences, the Earth's motion could not be proven. And when he did it again in 1631, he really got a wigging!
Isaac Newton Isaac was an English physicist and mathematician who is widely regarded as one of the most influential scientists of all time and as a key figure in the scientific revolution.In the summer of 1687, Isaac Newton published his masterpiece, The
Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy. Its publication was the
culmination of a momentous intellectual development spread over the previous
one hundred and fifty years that transformed Western mankind’s concept of
nature and knowledge. It marked the origin of modern science and is commonly
referred to as the Scientific Revolution. In many ways, the Western world has
been trading on the intellectual capital created at that time.
An astronomer, became interested in an old greek idea that the sun stood at the center of the universe.
Did he publish hes work quikly? Why or why not?
No he had publish his work quickly beacusehe he did publish his finding until1543, the last year of his life.
An italian scientist built on the new theories about astronomy.
Did the church liked him?What did they do about it?
No the church did not liked him.Took him to court in 1633 and threated him of torture and was never a free man.
What were some of his discoveries? That jupiter had four moons and the sun dark sppots and earths moon had a rough, uneven sutface.
What is the scientist method?Which scientists contributed to it?
A logical procedure for gathering and testing ideas.
