How Galileo improved life!
Galileo made an impact on the world through his contribution to Physics and Astronomy. One of his greatest achievements is the enhancement that he has done to the telescope, which has been used in discovering the Galilean moons. With all his contributions to science, Galileo Galilei has been addressed as the 'father of science', 'father of modern physics', 'the Father of Modern Science' and 'father of modern observational astronomy.' Galileo's astronomical discoveries and investigations into the Copernican theory have led to a lasting legacy which includes the categorisation of the four large moons of Jupiter discovered by Galileo, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto as the Galilean moons. Other scientific endeavours and principles are named after Galileo including the Galileo spacecraft, the first spacecraft to enter orbit around Jupiter, the proposed Galileo global satellite navigation system,
