Galileo Galilei
Galileo's Telescope

Historical Position

Italian Physicist, Mathematician, Astronomer, and Philosopher

Mentioned in

Never Look a Trojan in the Gift Horse

Galileo Galilei was a famous Italian astronomer during the Scientific Revolution. He is mentioned briefly in "Never Look a Trojan in the Gift Horse," but is never explained.

In the episode, Tuddrussel shows one of Galileo's telescopes to Otto. Tuddrussel remembers Galileo's name, so it's possible the telescope was a gift, but Tuddrussel probably stole it like how he stole Sinon's helmet later in the same episode.

In HistoryEdit

Galileo Galilei is most famous for his improvements to the telescope, the discovery of the Galilean moons, and his other astronomical observations.
