400th Anniversary of Galileo´s Telescope




1. Galileo's Moon, 2. Galileo's Telescope and some history - "The Instrument that Changed the World", 3. Galileo, 4. Galileo Galilei Observatory

I´d like to dedicate this week´s mosaic to the 400th Anniversary of Galileo´s telescope.

From The Guardian:

"Exactly 400 years ago today, on 25 August 1609, the Italian astronomer and philosopher Galilei Galileo showed Venetian merchants his new creation, a telescope – the instrument that was to bring him both scientific immortality and, more immediately, a whole lot of trouble."

Come and join the mosaic game on Mitsy´s blog HERE!

A great inspiration, and motivator to follow the path you think is right. Disregarding all moral conventions!
