The paper which I will be writing will discuss the life, discoveries, and the modern impact of the scientific accomplishments of Galileo Galilei. Born in Pisa, Italy in 1564, Galileo entered Pisa University as a medical student in 1581 and became a professor of mathematics at Padua. An astronomer and mathematician, Galileo was, unfortunately for himself, a man ahead of his time. Galileo discovered the law of uniformly accelerated motion towards the Earth, the parabolic path of projectiles, and the law that all bodies have weight. Among his other accomplishments was the improvement of the refracting telescope in 1610 and his advocacy of the Copernican theory which brought him into a conflict of ideas and truths between himself and the Inquisition. He was condemned by the church whose theories threatened everything that was taught by the priesthood as the holy truth and he was eventually broken by the Inquisition. Before being ultimately defeated by the church, however, Galileo made many contributions to the world of physics. His scientific discoveries and endeavors were only a portion of his contributions to the scientific community. Galileo's methods of testing and proving his theories were also of major importance since these painstaking and exact methodologies would lay the groundwork for future scientific discoveries. His brilliance brought about a new era in scientific advancement and his defeat at the hands of the church put a stop to the scientific revolution which he had started. In 1993 the Vatican formally recognized the validity of Galileo Galilei's scientific work.References Cited 1. GALILEO: PIONEER SCIENTIST - Stillman Drake 1990 2. GALILEO A LIFE - James Reston, Jr. 1941 3. COLLEGE MATHEMATICS JOURNAL - May 1994, Volume 25 Issue 3, p 193 Galileo Galilei was a great scientist and pioneer in the fields of mechanics, astronomy, thermometry, and magnetism, although mechanics and astronomy were his main passions. He was arguably one of the brightest men who ever lived. Galileo discovered and enhanced many scientific discoveries of his time period and was highly regarded as a Mathematician and Natural Philosopher. Galileo was persecuted for his views on Earth's relationship with the rest of the heavens since he believed that the Earth revolved around the Sun and that the heavens were constantly changing and evolving. Since Galilei's vision of a metamorphosing universe came in direct conflict with the views of Aristotle, views held by and supported by the church, Galileo was eventually called before the Inquisition and forced to recant his views. Nonetheless, Galileo Galilei made significant contributions to the scientific community and he is remembered as a great scientist and innovator.Galileo Galilei was born in 1564 in Pisa, Italy (then a part of the Duchy of Tuscany), to Vincenzo Galilei, a musician, and Giulia Ammannati. Galileo studied medicine at the university of Pisa from 1581 to 1585, but his real interests were in mathematics...
