Galileo Galile (15 February 1564 – 8 January 1642), was an Italian astronomer, physicist, engineer, philosopher, and mathematician who played a major role in the scientific revolution during the Renaissance.

Galileo has been called the "father of observational astronomy", the "father of modern physics", and the "father of science".

His contributions to observational astronomy include the telescopic confirmation of the phases of Venus, the discovery of the four largest satellites of Jupiter (named the Galilean moons in his honor), and the observation and analysis of sunspots.

Galileo also worked in applied science and technology, inventing an improved military compass and other instruments. Galileo's controversial ideas within his lifetime, was led to be investigated by the Roman Inquisition in 1615, and they concluded that it could only be supported as a possibility, not as an established fact.

Galileo later defended his views in Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems, which appeared to attack Pope Urban VIII and thus alienated him and the Jesuits, who had both supported Galileo up until this point.

He was tried by the Inquisition, found "vehemently suspect of heresy", forced to recant, and spent the rest of his life under house arrest.

It was while Galileo was under house arrest that he wrote one of his finest works, Two New Sciences.

Here he summarized the work he had done some forty years earlier, on the two sciences now called kinematics and strength of materials.
