2) Were and when he born and died?
3)Name two important Galileo's contributions.
Galileo, was an Italian mathematician, astronomer, and
philosopher who played a major role in the Scientific Revolution.
His achievements include improvements to the telescope and
consequent astronomical observations and support for

Galileo has been called the "father of modern observational
astronomy", the "father of modern physics", the "father of
science", and "the Father of Modern Science".
His contributions to observational astronomy include the
telescopic confirmation of the phases of Venus, the discovery of
the four largest satellites of Jupiter (named the Galilean moons in
his honour), and the observation and analysis of sunspots.
Some of Galileo’s inventions were created because Galileo needed
money to support his family and help provide dowry for his
Galileo also built a telescope.
Another invention that Galileo
worked on was a pendulum clock.
Galileo produced some mathematics: Galileo's paradox, which shows that there are as
many perfect squares as there are whole numbers, even though most numbers are not
Galileo Galilei taught geometry in some moment of his life. His contribution to this
branch of the science, is in his interest for the development of the cycloid, (curve that
Galileo Galilei forms for the path of a point located on a circumference that moves for a
straight line) He invented the compass of proportion, which was allowing to do with
rapidity numerical calculations and to be of great usefulness up to the invention of the
