Galileo's big ideas

In my pages of the book I would want to talk about the ideas and theories Galileo was presenting at the time. Maybe talk about how he was distributing his new discoveries and ideas to people. Show how Galileo was making new friends and believers but also start to hit on how he was making enemies and had critics. Show how excited Galileo was to discover these new things and also share his theories but also show that not everyone was not so excited as Galileo. Show that some people wanted science to conform to their beliefs instead of believing what is being shown to them. Maybe mention some of Galileo's strongest supporters and friends like Pope Urban The VIII and maybe mention one of his strongest critics or enemies. To show that discovering new things and coming up with new ideas doesn't mean that everyone will instantly love and accept them.
