Galileo Galilei

This "Paper Genius" collage celebrates the achievements and discoveries of Galileo Galilei. He is best known for his discovery of the 4 largest moons of Jupiter, proving the validity of the Heliocentric theory, and his work on falling objectsHe also studied the resistance of bodies to separation, the cause of cohesion, naturally accelerated motion, the motion of projectiles and pendulums, the force of percussion, principles of relativity, inertia, and gravity. He vastly improved the telescope and was then able to view and record Jupiter's largest moons, sunspots, moon craters and the phases of Venus. He improved the compass and invented the thermoscope (an instrument that indicates temperature changes). He wrote numerous seminal books and manuscripts that shaped modern astronomy, physics, mathematics, engineering and established the scientific method as we know it today. He is known as the "father of modern science."
