Galileo Galilei — Father of Physics
Galileo Galilei was an Italian astronomer, physicist, and engineer. He was born in Pisa on February 15th, 1564.
Galileo is famous for his work with telescopes, which he used to make some of the first detailed observations of celestial bodies such as the Moon, Jupiter’s moons and phases of Venus.
In 1610, he published Sidereus Nuncius (Starry Messenger), which announced his findings about the moon and sunspots. The Sunspot Letters were a series of letters that Galileo wrote in 1613-1615 to a friend describing a new theory he had developed about sunspots. These letters were later collected into book form and published in 1623 under the title Letters on Sunspots.
