Galileo Galilei

Galileo Galilei, an Italian used his "optic tube" telescope. to look into the night time sky to see things never observed before. Kepler developed mathematical models to explain motion, which helped to allow humans to predict what is going on. Galileo's inquiry on motion would be used by Sir Isaac Newton to uncover more mysteries of the Universe. Newton's law of motion would take astronomy to a new scientific level.
