From the history of physics. 450th anniversary of the birth of Galileo Galilei
“Galileo was amazingly endowed with a gift of... inculcating scientific truth”
Ever since centuries ago, when he came to the fore as a mighty figure in Enlightenment science, Galileo Galilei has been admired and respected not only for supporting Copernican theory and laying the foundations of mechanics and physics; and not only for his unique ability to disprove arguments against the new science and the new world view; but also for his civic courage in defending his discoveries and views, a crucial quality for anyone who opposes outdated views and ideas.
