He later used his discovery to design a clock that used pendulums. While Galileo was looking for a job after he left the University of Pisa, 1856, he invented the hydrostatic balance.

He also proved that the sun was the center of the galaxy. Galileo deserved to be called the founder of modern experimental science.
He read books on geometry by Descartes, algebra books by John Wallis, and eventually developed the binomial theorem which was a shortcut in multiplying binomials (Margaret, 46). Newton was 22 at this time and he was already going beyond other people's thinking.... ... middle of paper ... ...e began by mastering mathematics. He developed calculus in order for him to find the rate of change of objects. He learned about light and colors, which lead to his invention of the refracting telescope. He was the man that finally built a model of astronomy and physics and in doing so, brought together the work of Kepler and Galileo and of course his own findings on gravity (Margaret, 90).
He was always determined to do his best. He had passion for finding and figuring out problems. Also, he liked to observe what he saw with his own eyes such as nature, and universe. He decided to choose the path with mathematical subjects and philosophy although his father did not agree. He was an Italian mathematician, physicist, and astronomer who observed planets such as moon, Jupiter with telescopes, and contributed modern physics and astronomy’s improvements to the dynamic research.
The telescope was invented based off of a “spyglass” that was created by a Flemish lens grinder. Galileo was a man of many trades; philosophy, astronomy, and mathematics were among his favorites. Before he started studying the skies, Galileo taught math at Pisa and then Padua. After creating his telescope he became known as a hero to many people across Italy and most of Europe. Galileo Galilei was born in Pisa, Italy in February of 1564.
His manuscript De Revolutionibus created quite a stir, and raised a following among the students he lectured infrequently. "Considered the father of modern astronomy, he completely revolutionized science in the 1500s, giving way to others with radical theories to present them, and be accepted, not rejected." By the time of Copernicus' passing, most of Europe was thirsting for more information. What he contributed to astronomy will not be forgotten, and many new ideas shall rise because of his radical thinking, making him truly worthy of being 'The father of Modern Astronomy," and being placed on Time Magazine's list of the 100 most influential people of the millenia.
Galileo Galileo was a teacher, astronomer, philosopher, and physicist and was known to be a major part of the scientific revolution. With all of his elaborate drawings and notes he has been referred to as the father of modern astronomy, father of modern physics, and as father of science. Galileo's experimentation was an active process involved the investigating of causal relationships among variables. His studies in scientific experimentation would quickly become and forever remain a cornerstone of unlocking the secrets of nature and the universe. Galileo was born in Pisa, Italy, on February 15th 1564, His schooling included going to the University of Pisa, where he enrolled to be a doctor and get a medical degree but never finished.
All these discoveries gave Galileo a great reputation allowing him to land a job at the University of Pisa. While there he started to develop interest in the Copernican theory of heliocentricity. This was dangerous work. The heliocentric theory directly conflicted with church teachings that everything, sun included, revolved around the earth. Through his studies, Galileo concluded that Copernicus was right.
Johannes Kepler is a famous mathematician, astronomer, and astrologer of the Scientific Revolution during the seventeenth century. Kepler has made some very important contribution to the fields of astronomy and mathematics. Without him we might not have made some discoveries until much later. He is one of the most important scientists of the Scientific Revolution. Johannes Kepler made some important contributions to astronomy and had some incredible works and accomplishments all due to his early developed love for science.
