Full Description

Meet Galileo Galilei and discover the story of his life and work in this engagingly illustrated biography – narrated by the scientist himself. Astronomer, physicist, and philosopher Galileo Galilei was referred to as “The Father of Modern Science,” because of his groundbreaking research. Making observations about nature, and using mathematics to back them up, he proved the Copernican Theory true: the Sun, not the Earth, is the centre of the universe. Join Galileo on his pioneering journey to see why his work had such long-lasting implications, and why the Catholic Church even condemned him for heresy. Ages: 6 plus
