Galileo Galilei

by: colleen van winkle and abby walker

Hello my name is Galileo Galilei, I was born on February 15, 1564 in Pisa, Italy. I was a mathematician, astronomer, physicist, mathematician, philosopher and inventor. I created the telescope, the compass and the thermometer. I also proved the theory that the Earth is the center of the universe wrong, by using the telescope to find evidence that the Earth revolves around the sun. I absolutely love the outer space its my favorite thing to study!

Fun facts about me! I originally enrolled to get a medical degree, but I never finished school.  I never married but, had three kids from an affair! I don't believe in divorce. I am a Christian. I like music alot and play the lute very well. I TECHNICALLY DIDNT INVENT THE TELESCOPE, I WAS JUST THE FIRST ONE TO TEST IT OUT.

Extra information about me:

I disagree with Kepler's theory that the moon causes tides, I believe that it has to do with the nature of Earth!

Most people did not support my findings about the moon, especially the church.

You wouldn't think it but, scientists have friends! My BFFS were Nicolaus Copernicus, Hans Lippershey, Aristotle, Vincenzo Galilei, and Joseph Losey.
