Caption: Galileo Galilei (1564-1642), Italian physicist, mathematician, astronomer and philosopher. Montage of images of the life and work of Galileo, including his gravity experiment, his moon maps, his 'Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems' (1632), his trial for heresy, house arrest, and visit from John Milton. Galileo was the first to successfully use a telescope to observe the heavens, discovering new stars, mountains on the Moon, and the phases of Venus. His discovery of moons that circled Jupiter, not the Earth, offered support for the Copernican system that removed the Earth from the centre of the Solar System. This brought Galileo into conflict with the Catholic Church. After writing his 'Dialogue', he was tried and found guilty of heresy and forced to recant his views.
