Description
Many historians credit Galileo as the founder of modern experimental science. But his life was not easy. His outspoken beliefs and discoveries earned him many enemies. The Roman Catholic Church disagreed with Galileo regarding Earth's position in the universe. The Church punished him and he spent the rest of his life under house arrest. This book is the perfect introduction to the life and work of this amazing scientist.
