Galileo Galilei was a renowned Italian physicist, mathematician, and astronomer who made significant contributions to the scientific revolution of the 17th century. Through his observational astronomy, he was able to disprove many established theories and develop new ones, cementing his place as one of the most important figures in the history of science.

  • 00:00:00 Galileo Galilei was a physicist, engineer, philosopher, and mathematician who is credited with the scientific revolution of the 17th century. He is also considered the father of modern physics. His most significant contributions to astronomy were made through observational astronomy, and as a result, many space projects have his name. He was born on February 15, 1564, and died on January 8, 1642. Galileo was a skeptic who always questioned established authority and believed that early on he became interested in being right. After completing his studies at the University of Pisa, he hired Galileo as a mathematics professor but found him difficult to work with and at times inappropriate with his students. This led to his contract not being renewed at the end of his tenure. It was thought that objects fall at a constant velocity because of their weight, which sounds correct but Galileo proved that this was not the case by testing that all objects fall at the same acceleration, despite their distance from the ground. This led to him playing one of the earliest experiments in the field of relativity. Galileo was also a pioneer in applied science and technology, developing basic systems such as clocks that worked using combinations of bellows and mirrors, and a rudimentary telescope that could magn
