Galileo Galilee was born in 1564 in the city of Pisa, Italy. About twenty years

and easier to examine. This was called; the telescope. it could make things lock thirty

telescope and he began to study the stars and other things in the sky.

earth, with mountains and valleys. When he studied the stars, he discovered that the
"star” which moved, were not really stars, but worlds like the earth. He proved that
