Galileo Galilei

Galieo did not invent the telescope. He was the 1st to use it systematically to observe celestial objects and record his discoverings. Galieo wrote about his obeservations and this angered the Roman Catholic Church. The church placed him under house arrest. This inquistion made Galieo kneel down and say that the helio centric model was false. They did that because they didn't belive in the helio centric model. During the time of Galileo there weren't really "scientists as we know today. People studied the works of the claasical philosopher, such as Aristotle. They didnt run exiperments. They just belived them. But galileo had a differnt idea. He wanted to test the principals and see if he could observe them in the real world. The people of his time called this the scientific method.
