The Italian scientist Galileo Galilei is remembered today as a genius who, in the early seventeenth century, produced revolutionary developments and innovations in astronomy and physics that contributed greatly to the human understanding of how the world works. However, during his lifetime Galileo suffered persecution because his ideas were offensive to the religious leaders of his times. This book tells the story of Galileos life, as well as the development and influence of his scientific work.
