1636 Galileo Galilei portrait astronomer

Item # 1410538

Paul Stewart

<p>Galileo Galilei, Italian astronomer. Engraving by Robert Hart 1834 from 'The Gallery of Portraits' from the painting by Ramsay ref Susterman's 1636 with later tinting. In 1610 Galileo observed mountains on the moon, four satellites of Jupiter and numerous dim stars. In his book, Dialogue of the Two Chief World Systems he discussed Ptolomeic and Copernican (heliocentric) cosmologies. He thought his discussion was tactful, but it was considered heretical by the Inquisition in 1633 and he was sentenced to house arrest for life. He also studied the dynamics of falling bodies, and Boyle would later confirm in his experiments that bodies fell at the same speed in a vacuum. Galileo improved the operation of telescopes, and pioneered the microscope after hearing of the first compound microscopes being made in the Netherlands. Albert Einstein called him the father of modern science.</p>
