Booknotes encounters the 16th century polymath, Galileo Galilei

By Judith Krummeck | Posted in Booknotes, Host Blogs | 2 Comments



In 1632, Galileo Galilei was tried by the Inquisition and found to be “vehemently suspect of heresy” for maintaining that the earth revolved around the sun. Now, Dr. Mario Livio, astrophysicist and best selling author of seven books, has just published Galileo: And the Science Deniers.

    As a new member of the station, I am just learning about the many things on offer. I have listened to two of the book note items and I am enthused to hear more. A bit of intellectual stimulation is just what the doctor ordered, as they say. Thank you.
