Google commemorates anniversary of Galileo’s telescope debut


Galileo’s creation laid the groundwork for breakthroughs in astronomy. He was able to confirm Copernicus’ earlier theory from almost a century before that the sun, and not the earth, was at the center of the solar system.

His findings quickly found opposition from the Church, being accused as a heretic for suspicious interpretation of the Bible and he spent most of his latter years under house arrest.

In 1992, John Paul II rehabilitated Galileo and in 2000 issued a formal apology for the process against him.
