Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei made a number of
significant discoveries that laid the groundwork for
modern physics and astronomy. Unfortunately, his
pioneering accomplishments were not always widely
accepted. We will discuss the history of astronomy
leading up to Galileo, what he discovered, how he got
in trouble, and how his case was finally resolved.
