Series: Genius Scientists and Their Genius Ideas

By Paul W. Hightower

This title in the GENIUS SCIENTISTS AND THEIR GENIUS IDEAS series is the perfect introduction to the life and work of the amazing scientist, Galileo. Many historians credit Galileo as the "founder of modern experimental science." But his life was not easy. His outspoken beliefs and discoveries earned him many enemies. The Roman Catholic Church disagreed with Galileo regarding Earth’s position in the universe. The Church punished him and he spent the rest of his life under house arrest.
