Galileo and the telescope


The news of this new invention spread rapidly through Europe, and the device itself quickly followed. By April 1609 three-powered spyglasses could be bought in spectacle-maker s shops on the Pont Neuf in Paris, and four months later there were several in Italy. (fig. 4) We know that Thomas Harriot observed the Moon with a six-powered instrument early in August 1609. But it…

In fact, we’re not sure who did, although a Dutch spectacle-maker named Hans Lipperhey often gets the credit (we know that he applied for a patent in the fall of 1608). Within a year, Galileo had got hold of one of these Dutch instruments and quickly improved the design. Soon, he had a telescope that could magnify 20 or even 30 times. As historian of science Owen Gingerich…

I m starting a series on the top astronomers, with probably about eleven astronomers that I will be covering overall. So, let s start out from the top, with the top most important astronomer. In my opinion, Galileo Galilei is the top astronomer. Galileo Galilei (February 15, 1564 - January 8, 1642) Galileo was born to a poor family in Pisa, Italy in 1564 to Vincenzo Galilei…

Scientists have studied a visual illusion first discovered by Galileo Galilei, and found that it occurs because of the surprising way our eyes see lightness and darkness in the world. Their results advance our understanding of how our brains are wired for seeing white versus black objects. The work was done by Jens Kremkow and led by Jose Manuel Alonso and Qasim Zaidi at the…

StarChild Question of the Month for September 2001 Answer: No. The earliest record of an existing telescope is from a patent application in Holland on 2 October 1608. The application was made by Dutch spectacle maker Hans Lippershay (sometimes found as Lipperhey). Lippershay applied to be granted exclusive rights to make and distribute an instrument that would allow you to…

Drawings of the moon as seen with Galileo s telescope. By his own account, Galileo first observed the Moon on November 30, 1609. Comparing patterns of light and shadow in the vicinity of the terminator (dividing line between light and shadow) at first and third quarter, Galileo could argue convincingly that there exists mountains and valleys on the lunar surface. Aristotelian…

The NEOWISE analysis shows us we ve made a good start at finding those objects that truly represent an impact hazard to Earth,said Lindley Johnson, program executive for the Near-Earth Object Observation Program at NASA Headquarters in Washington. But we ve many more to find, and it will take a concerted effort during the next couple of decades to find all of them that could…

Galileo returns to the Catholic Church By James Dacey Last week I found myself travelling through Rome, when I stumbled across a remider that science and religion are still battling it out in some quarters. A new exhibition at the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli celebrates Galileo Galilei’s unerring faith in the Catholic Church, despite the ongoing debate surrounding this…

Reading the works of these great scientists, Newton grew more ambitious about making discoveries himself. While still working part-time as a servant, he wrote a note to himself. In it he posed questions which had not yet been answered by science. These included questions about gravity, the nature of light, the nature of color and vision, and atoms. After three years at Cambridge…

Galileo Galilei (The Father of Physics and Astronomy) Galileo was the oldest of six brothers and sisters. He was born in Pisa in February, 1564. His mother was called Giulia and his father was a musician called Vincenzo. The family surname was Galilei. This means that Galileo s first name was virtually the same as his surname!

Morgan Freeman’s iconic voice announcing “space…time…life itself” echoes through the television series “Through the Wormhole.” Filled with the dappled glow of galaxies and the spiraling of particle collisions, the show is a vivid, mind-bending dance of physics and philosophy. The series, which premiered on Science Channel in 2010 and is hosted by Freeman, draws on astrophysics…
