G is for Galileo Galilei

Galileo Galilei deserves credit for pursuing scientific truth in the face of opposition.  It is this perseverance that makes possible our growing knowledge of the universe.  Here is a brief introduction to his life and works.


  1. He was a brave man. I was honored to visit his tomb in Florence while visiting Italy last summer.

  2. That must have taken a lot of courage...and a huge risk. Fascinating person who made quite an impact on the world.
