No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Galileo's work ranged through mechanics and motion, to sound, speech and light, and the system of the universe. His discovery of the pendulum, and his development of the telescope, made him famous throughout Europe. This book tells the story of Galileo's fight for scientific proof instead of blind belief. His scientific methods ultimately swept the world.
