Galileo - proves church wrong

Galileo is the greatest scientist in history and created modern astronomy . He is Italian . Although he was a troublemaker at first he also discovered the pendulum vibration which lead to finding how to tell time accurately . He also found out that objects fall at the same acceleration , which Newton add to and more complicated 500 years later . He improved the telescope . Made observation of the moon , stars , planets , and sunspots that proved Copernican .

Unfair treatment

The church put Galileo on house arrest for proving that the planets revolved around the sun because the church thought that the planets and the sun revolved around the

earth .
