Back then the Christian Church believed and said that the earth was the center of the universe..
Soon it was discovered by a Polish astronomer, Nicolaus Copernicus, that there were many more planets than earth and that earth was not the center of the universe.
Soon, more and more astronomers were discovering about the universe and mostly proved that the Christian Church was wrong.
When the Christian Church heard about people telling them that they were wrong, they got very angry and threatened the astronomers, of torture and even death!
Galileo published a book that supported the view that the planets orbit the sun. For this, he was put on a trail by the Inquisition. They insisted that Galileo publicly reject his findings and to prove himself wrong. If not, he would be tortured and die!!
Galileo gave in, and did what the Church told him to. Though, legend has it that on his way out of the court, he mumbled, "And yet it does move"
And yet it does move!
