In this book, he established the imperfection of the heavens by describing dark patches on the sun’s surface – sunspots.

Established that, if there is no air resistance, everything falls to the ground at the same rate regardless of its weight.

Galileo became fascinated by the movement of pendulums, noting that if the length of the string was constant, it didn’t matter how hard you swung it, the pendulum always moved to-and-fro at the same rate.

Throughout history, there have been many Italian women scientists who have made significant contribution to the field. Galileo Galilei was born in the Italian city of Pisa on February 15, 1564. And likewise a pendulum would change the rate at which it swung to and fro only if you changed the length of the string. Aristarchus, in Ancient Greece, proposed this 18 centuries earlier. He was the eldest son of Vincenzo Galilei and Giulia Ammannati. He also said he preferred the idea that the earth orbits the sun to the idea that the earth is the center of the universe: this was known as the Copernican view after Nicholas Copernicus proposed a heliocentric or sun-centered Solar System in 1543. This later became Newton’s First Law of Motion. Galileo realized that he was much more interested in mathematics and physics than he was in medicine. Despite the final approval, the book was still not actually published in any countries with a powerful Catholic Church. In the book he seemed to argue in favor of a heliocentric Solar System. Retired.

Galileo discovered that the Milky Way is made up of stars. He used balls rolling down wooden ramps for most of his investigations of gravity and acceleration. natural philosophy based on Aristotle’s incorrect ideas. Discovered that for pendulums, their period of oscillation squared is directly proportional to their length and is independent of the mass attached to the string or rod. Galileo settled in Padua, where he taught mathematics, physics, and astronomy, making many momentous scientific discoveries. Identified that anything thrown or fired on Earth, such as a rock or a cannonball, flies along a curved path and that the shape of the curve is a parabola.

Gravity accelerates all objects equally, whatever their mass. The book was published in Holland after it was smuggled out of Italy.

This demonstration became known as Galileo’s Paradox.

He was interrogated by the Inquisition and threatened with torture. Discovered that Venus has phases like the moon, ranging from a thin crescent to full. He discovered methane after reading a paper by Benjamin Franklin of America on "flammable air", and Volta searched for it carefully in Italy. It contained much of what Galileo had discovered and learned during his many years of experimentation and theorizing. His father encouraged him to study medicine, and Galileo took his father’s advice, starting a medical course at the University of Pisa when he was 17 years old. keep up the good work. Discovered that the Milky Way is made up of stars. Galileo was confined to his house in the city of Florence for eight years, during which time he was allowed to receive visitors.

He found balls fired from cannons followed a path shaped like a parabola and that all bodies fall to Earth with a constant acceleration. Aged 24, he began teaching art in the Italian city of Florence. As an accomplished musician, Galileo knew that the relationship between string length and the note it produced was mathematical – this had been proved almost 2000 years earlier by the Pythagoreans in Ancient Greece. Alberto Conti (born September 27, 1966), is an astrophysicist and the Director of … Darwin Pleaded for Cheaper Origin of Species, Getting Through Hard Times – The Triumph of Stoic Philosophy, Johannes Kepler, God, and the Solar System, Charles Babbage and the Vengeance of Organ-Grinders, Howard Robertson – the Man who Proved Einstein Wrong, Susskind, Alice, and Wave-Particle Gullibility, 11 Great Scientists Who Rose From Harsh Beginnings. Discovered the rings of Saturn, although he found their appearance very confusing. In Galileo’s time the Church reluctantly tried to accommodate science to some extent. However, in countries where the Catholic Church was not strong, such as England, Holland, Germany, Scotland, Switzerland, and all of Scandinavia, Galileo’s books were available for anyone to read. Galileo Galilei – most people simply call him Galileo – was one of the most significant people in the history of science. Galileo’s troubles began in 1613 when he was 49 years old and published Letters on Sunspots. Roughly speaking, its attitude was that it was okay for you to do science, and it was even okay if you find that the Church’s interpretation of the Bible was wrong, as long as you didn’t say it out loud. At the age of 22, Galileo published a book about a hydrostatic balance he had invented. Was the first person ever to see the planet Neptune. Amedeo Avogadro (1776-1856) An Italian scientist famous for his contributions to molecular theory, such as concepts that came to be known as Avogadro's law, Avogadro's number and Avogadro's principle.

Still active in research.

It is probably a myth that he discovered this by dropping cannon balls from the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Please use the following MLA compliant citation: Excellent article – quicker to read than wikipedia (much as I support wikipedia!) Last papers published in 2015. We know this from drawings in his notebook. Born and raised in the USA, then I married an Italian...Vive in Italia dal 1988 ed ha la cittadinanza Italiana. Famous Italians in History.

His father was a well-known composer, who played the lute, a stringed instrument. Girolamo Cardano [1501-1576] Italian Scientists Galileo Galilei He discovered the 4 main moons of Jupiter University of Pisa to be a doctor The first Nuclear Reactor Military weapons Nuclear chain reaction He only lived to be 53 years old.

Grand Prix Sci. • Amedeo Avogadro (1776-1856), chemist, most noted for his contribution to molecular theory now known as Avogadro's law, which states that equal volumes of gases under the same conditions of temperature and pressure will contain equal numbers of molecules. Enrico Fermi The planets orbit the Sun Galileo's As the years passed, the Catholic Church gradually began removing prohibition orders on some of Galileo’s books, or allowed edited versions to be published.

It didn’t matter how hard you hit a lute string, it would always play the same note; but if you changed the length of the string you could you change the musical note.
