Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) Italian mathematician, astronomer, and physicist. First to use a telescope to observe the skies.
A NASA space probe in orbit around Jupiter.
Italian astronomer and mathematician who was the first to use a telescope to study the stars; demonstrated that different weights descend at the same rate; perfected the refracting telescope that enabled him to make many discoveries (1564-1642)
a spacecraft studying Jupiter's atmosphere, moons, and magnetic environment
was the person to find out that Jupiter had four moons and proved that every thing didn't go around the Earth, but it went around the Sun.
An Italian astronomer and scientist (1564 - 1642) who first systematically used a telescope to study celestial objects and publish his findings. His observations helped consolidate the Copernican concept of a heliocentric model. He also made valuable contributions to the phsyics of motion.
a famous Italian astronomer (1564-1642) who was the first person to use a telescope to look at the sky.
An Italian astronomer living in the early 17th century. The first person to make and use an astronomical telescope. With it, he discovered Jupiter's moons and the phases of Venus.
A probe sent to observe Jupiter and its Galilean moons. Named after the famous Italian scientist.
Published Copernicus's findings (17th century); added own discoveries concerning laws of gravity and planetary motion; condemned by the Catholic church for his work. (p. 530)
A NASA space exploration satellite that was launched on October 18, 1989. Galileo was sent to Jupiter to study the planet's atmosphere , moons, and surrounding magnetosphere, for 2 years starting in December 1995. It was named for the Italian Renaissance scientist who discovered Jupiter's major moons in 1610 with the first astronomical telescope.
Italian astronomer who invented the telescope and made lots of astronomic discoveries.
Galileo was an unmanned spacecraft sent by NASA to study the planet Jupiter and its moons. Named after the astronomer and Renaissance pioneer Galileo Galilei, it was launched on October 18, 1989 by the Space Shuttle Atlantis on the STS-34 mission. It arrived at Jupiter on December 7, 1995, a little more than six years later, via gravitational assist flybys of Venus and Earth.
