    Galileo Galilei Timeline Timeline Description: Galileo Galilei ( - ) was a famed engineer, scientist, and astronomer who was fundamental in the scientific revolution during the Renaissance. He is most well known for improving the telescope, and his resulting observations that supported heliocentric astronomical theory - the concept that the sun was at the center of the solar system. When Galileo published his book debating the Copernican and Ptolemaic systems, the Church found him guilty of heresy and sentenced him to house arrest for the rest of his life.

    Galileo Galilei provided the critical evidence to support the Copernican o was known by his first name, like Tycho. He worked at the same time that Kepler was working on his orbital theory. As early as , Galileo wrote to Kepler that "Like you, I accepted the Copernican position several years ago. Copernican geokinetic system. Graney argues that it was largely a science-versus-science debate, rather than church-versus-science as often incorrectly portrayed. In , the Jesuit Giovanni Battista Riccioli published his book New Almagest wherein he outlined 77 arguments against the Copernican system and 49 arguments in favour of it.

      Then Galileo came along with his handy telescope (a recent invention), and his observations clearly supported the Copernican worldview. . Sometime in the s, Galileo adopted the Copernican hypothesis of a heliocentric solar system. In Roman Catholic Italy, this was not a popular philosophy, for Church authorities still upheld the ideas of Aristotle and Ptolemy, and they had powerful political and economic reasons for insisting that Earth was the center of creation.

This book just perpetuates the old myth that Galileo was persecuted by the Catholic Church for his revelation that the earth was not the centre of the solar system but revolved around the sun.

The evidence convinced Galileo, and in the two years after his journey to Rome, while he occupied himself with continued observation of sunspots and non- astronomical work on the properties of floating bodies, he began to speak of the Copernican system as fact, not theory.

Thus he refrained from publishing anything about his theories for the next decade, but the ascension of a liberal Pope, Urban VIII, encouraged him to publish the Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems inwhich openly argued for the Copernican system.

The Church now accused Galileo of heresy, tried him before the Inquisition, and. When Galileo published his book debating the Copernican and Ptolemaic systems, the Church found him guilty of heresy and sentenced him to house arrest for.

Galileo didn't create the Copernican model, but he did provide observatory confirmation. Galileo also discovered sunspots, which meant that the sun rotates, The Copernican model didn't predict that.

Successive nights of observation revealed that these “stars” must be moons orbiting Jupiter, just as the Moon revolves around the Earth in the Copernican system. Galileo quickly published his discoveries in a small book entitled Siderius Nuncius, or Starry Messenger.

Over the next two years, Galileo would also observe sunspots, the. Galileo born on Februin Pisa Dutchy of Florence and died on January 8th, in Arcetri, Grand Duchy of Tuscany, Italy.
