Galileo Discovers Jupiter's Moons


The telescope forever changed astronomy by providing more detailed views of distant objects than was previously possible. Galileo pioneered astronomy as the first person to study the celestial objects through a telescope. His observations, including the discovery of moons around Jupiter, helped revolutionize the way people thought about the universe. This video segment adapted from NOVA describes some of Galileo's first discoveries with the telescope.
