Celebrating Galileo's Birthday! Galileo Galilei was born on February 15, 1564 in Pisa, Italy. He was an Italian physicist, mathmatician, engineer, astronomer, and philosopher who played a major role in the scientific revolution during the Renaissance. He was the first person to use a refracting telescope to make important astronomical discoveries, including the moons of the planet Jupiter and the phases of the planet Venus. He also discovered the rings of Saturn, even though he was confused about their appearance. He found that our moon was not flat but indeed has mountains! Galileo also backed famous astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus with his theory that the universe revolved around the Sun rather than the Earth. Wishing a very happy 451st Birthday to Galileo Galilei!
