Synopsis: Galileo, one of history's best-known scientists, is introduced in this illuminating activity book. Children will learn how Galileo's revolutionary discoveries and sometimes controversial theories changed his world and laid the groundwork for modern astronomy and physics. This book will inspire kids to be stargazers and future astronauts or scientists as they discover Galileo's life and work. Activities allow children to try some of his theories on their own, with experiments that include playing with gravity and motion, making a pendulum, observing the moon, and painting with light and shadow. Along with the scientific aspects of Galileo's life, his passion for music and art are discussed and exemplified by period engravings, maps, and prints. A time line, glossary, and listings of major science museums, planetariums, and web sites for further exploration complement this activity book.

About the Author: Richard Panchyk is the author of American Folk Art for Kids, World War II for Kids, and Archaeology for Kids, and the coauthor of Engineering the City. Buzz Aldrin Ph. D. was one of the first two humans to walk on the moon during the Apollo 11 landing of 1969. Since retiring from NASA, he has devoted himself to ensuring the continuation of manned space exploration.
