Science Cards – Galileo & Scicurious

With a little help from Bora, the first iteration of my new science cards did wonderfully last week.  So this week, I cover my eyes and hope to have even more luck:

First up is Galileo.  What did he do? Oh well, just looked at the Milky Way through a telescope and said that objects of the same size and shape (but different masses) fall to Earth at the same rate.  You know, and a bunch of other important stuff… enough that he’s considered by many to be the father of modern science. Wikipedia quotes Stephen Hawking as saying, “Galileo, perhaps more than any other single person, was responsible for the birth of modern science.”

Galileo, it would seem, is probably a pretty cool person to hang out with.  Unfortunately, given that he isn’t alive, that’s pretty unlikely to happen.  Good for me, though, is the following science blogger will be alive and kicking for many decades to come.  So if scicurious, an awesome (and anonymous) brain-blogger, ever wants to join me in an afternoon at the museum, my schedule is open.  She was also nice enough to agree to participate. :)

I hope everyone enjoys this round of science cards.  I’m still hearing back from some of the bloggers I contacted, but if/when they run out, there will be plenty of historical scientists to keep carding.
