Galileo Galilei

Galileo could neverprove his theory, but he alsways knew light was finite;


Now, Galileo was never actually able to prove his theory about finite ;ogjt. due to his lack of resources, so he did not discover the speed of light

Galileo Galilei; 15 February 1564 – 8 January 1642, was an Italian astronomer, physicist, engineer, philosopher, and mathematician who played a major role in the scientific revolution during the Renaissance. His achievements include improvements to the telescope and consequent astronomical observations and support for heliocentrism. Galileo has been called the "father of modern observational astronomy", the "father of modern physics", and the "father of modern science".

The picture below, of everyone's favorite outlaw/wookie buddies show us a great example of the speed of light. nIn Star Wars, when they'd travel at thespeed oof light, they seem to disapear... because the speed of light is too fast for us to see!

Galileo Galilei's Lantern ExperimentHis experiment (if he ever conducted it at all), involved placing two lanterns a mile apart and trying to see if there was any noticeable lag between the two; the results were inconclusive. The only thing Galileo could surmise was that if light wasn’t infinite, it was fast and that experiments on such a small scale were destined to fail.
