Galieo Galilei was an Italian astronomer, physicist and mathematician who is widely credited as being the founder and father of modern science. Perhaps Galileo's biggest influence on today's science is that he was willing to stick to his findings despite the fact that the Catholic church felt he was in direct confrontation with their teachings.
