Galileo built a telescope to view outer space. His observations were founded off of Copernicus's heliocentric theory and Kepler's laws.
Is the Earth truly the center of all motion?
Galileo discovered many things about space through his telescope. He learned that the moon had a rough surface, although Aristotle insisted that it was smooth.
Perhaps what Aristotle and the Bible say is false, and the heliocentric theory really is true.
By observing Venus, Galileo deduced that it revolved around the Sun. Also, he saw that Jupiter had moons, just like the Earth.
Hmm... so Aristotle was wrong!
In 1632, Galileo published a book called "Dialogue on the Two Chief World Systems". The book described an imaginary conversation about the theories of Ptolemy and Copernicus. Galileo did not openly take sides, but the book was really a clever argument for the Copernican theory. The character who upheld the geocentric theory was portrayed as foolish. The one who believed the heliocentric theory was logical and convincing.
Go, heliocentric theory!
The more Galileo looked through his telescope, the more he became sure of the heliocentric theory.
There's no way that this theory can't be true!
