Galileo Galilei was an Italian astronomer, mathematician, physicist, and professor that laid the foundation for modern physics and astronomy and was known as “The Father of Modern Science.” He also constructed a telescope and was an advocate of the Copernican theory, which supports a sun-centered solar system (heliocentrism). His inventions, from compasses and balances to improved telescopes and microscopes revolutionized astronomy and biology and paved the way for the codification of classical mechanics by Isaac Newton.
Galileo Galilei was born in Pisa in 1564 during the Italian Renaissance, the first of six children of Vincenzo Galilei, a famous musician. His family moved to the city of Florence when he was 10 years old. Galilei was a great musician and student, and at first he wanted to become a doctor, so he went to the University of Pisa to study medicine in 1581.
In 1581 he entered the University of Pisa to study medicine, but was soon sidetracked by mathematics. In 1583 he made his first important discovery, describing the rules that govern the motion of pendulums. From 1589 to 1610, Galilei was chair of mathematics at the universities of Pisa and then Padua. During those years he performed the experiments with falling bodies that made his most significant contribution to physics.
