Sid Reynolds :)
Birth and Death
He died in: Arcetri Italy on January 8th 1642
In the beginning
He studied: Physics, Astronomy, Cosmology, Mathematics and Philosophy.
He did end up meeting and falling in love with a Venetian Woman named Marina Gamba and together they had two daughters and a son named; Virginia, Liza and Vincenzo.
However the couple never married, and it's to believe by financial problems or at least Galileo's fear
His biggest discoveries
Galileo had seen through his telescope the moons large craters, this of course upset the church because they thought god made everything perfect and that Galileo was a dumb dumb. The church in a way feared that people would begin to not believe in a god if what Galileo was saying was true. That the Sun is the center of our solar system and not Earth.
Galileo was put on house arrest, and died in 1642 from a fever and heart papitations
Church's thoughts VS Galileos
Galileo discovered the moon has craters and is therefore "imperfect". He also noticed the sun (below on the left) is the center of our solar system, unlike the churches thought of Earth (below on the left) being the center .
