Galileo galilei powerpoint(2)

  1. 1. Galileo Galilei<br />“Galileo, perhaps more than any other single person, was responsible for the birth of modern science.”<br /> -Stephen Hawking<br />Ariel Myers, Kristie Powers, Savanah Plancon<br />
  2. 2. Galileo’s Life..<br />-Galileo Galilei was born in Pisa, Italy on February 15, 1564<br />-Oldest of seven children<br />-His father wanted his son to study medicine because there was more money in medicine. <br />-At age eleven, Galileo was sent off to study in a Jesuit monastery.<br />
  3. 3. Education<br />-After four years, Galileo told his father that he wanted to be a monk. <br />-This was not exactly what father had in mind, so Galileo withdrew from the monastery. <br />-In 1581, at the age of 17, he gave into his father’s wishes entered the University of Pisa to study medicine, as his father wished.<br />-By 1585 he gave up his courses in medicine and left without completing a degree to become a mathematics teacher. <br />
  4. 4. His love for math. <br />-Galileo began teaching math privately in Florence<br />-Public appointments<br />-Books and sharing his thoughts. <br />
  5. 5. Galileo's Observations<br />-Galileo was one among the first scientists who questioned the ancient ideas and disproved them.<br />-The discovery of isochronism<br />-Two objects with different weights fall down at the same speed<br />
  6. 6. Galileo’s Inventions<br />-Reasons for Inventing<br />-1593: Thermometer<br />-1597: Compass<br />-1609: Telescope<br />-1641: Pendulum Clock<br />
  7. 7. Astronomy<br />-Galileo invented a telescope that had 3x the magnification then Hans Lippersney Invented in 1608. <br />-With this telescope he could see magnified, upright images of earth. <br />-First to report lunar mountains and craters, made the conclusion that the moon is rough and uneven just like Earth. <br />-Also observed Venus, Milky way, and Saturn. <br />
  8. 8. Nothing New….?<br />-Showing Planets were disks, not points of light<br />-The great “cloud” the Milky way was composed of enormous numbers of starts that had not been shown before. <br />-Planet Saturn had “ears” the rings of Saturn but his telescope wasn’t good enough to show them as more than extensions on either side of the planet. <br />-Showing moon was not smooth. <br />
  9. 9. Church Controversy<br />-It is commonly believed that the Catholic Church persecuted Galileo for abandoning the geocentric (earth-at-the-center) view of the solar system for the heliocentric (sun-at-the-center) view. <br />-He was sentenced to imprisonment, but that was later condemned to house arrest. <br />-During this period, personal interpretation was a sensitive subject. In the early 1600s, the Church had just been through the Reformation experience, and one of the chief quarrels with Protestants was over individual interpretation of the Bible. <br />
