Galileo’s Telescope
Galileo Galilei was one of the most famous scientists of the Seventeenth Century. He was
a Professor of Mathematics, but he was curious about everything. When Galileo
heard about a new invention called a telescope, he was determined to use it.
Galileo built a better telescope. He used it to look at the moon and the planets. Many
people thought they saw a face in the moon. Some cultures even saw animals, like a rabbit, there.
But Galileo saw mountains and
valleys. He
amazed readers by saying that the
moon had
features that were much like the
Earth.
Galileo saw round areas that he
called craters.
He named the craters and mountains
in Latin. He
saw very dark areas, and thought they
were seas. He
gave the largest features Latin names,
like “Sea of
Storms.”
Today we remember Galileo for his careful observation skills. A NASA spacecraft that
has traveled to the outer edge of the solar system was named Galileo.
