Summary
In 17th century Florence, Italy, Galileo trained his spyglass on the heavens and discovered that Jupiter has four moons, Venus has phases like the Moon, and, most shocking of all: Earth is not the center of the universe. This program follows the history of the telescope from the days of Copernicus to recent findings from the Hubble Telescope
