happy birthday galileo

Galileo Galilei was born in Pisa, Italy on February 15, 1564, according to SpaceWeather.com.

The SpaceWeather entry links to The Galileo Project, a website on the Rice University server which has a pretty amazing amount of information collected about Galileo and his work and the society he lived in. The section on Christianity and the Inquisition is interesting.
