Like Michelangelo, Galileo is another Renaissance great known just by his first name. A name that is synonymous with scientific achievement.
Born in Pisa, Italy, in the sixteenth century, Galileo contributed to the era's great rebirth of knowledge. He invented a telescope with which he was able to observe the heavens. From there, not even the sky was the limit!
He turned long held notions about the universe topsy-turvy with his support of a sun-centric solar system.
Patricia Brennan Demuth offers a sympathetic portrait of a brilliant man who lived in a time when speaking scientific truth to those in power was still a dangerous preposition.
