Meet the people who shook the world with science! Being a brilliant scientist doesn’t have to be about sitting in a lab all day. The scientists in this series not only did amazing work; they led pretty amazing lives as well Like Galileo Galilei. This Italian astronomer proved that the Earth moves around the sun – which sounds pretty obvious today, but only because he was totally right! At the time, this idea was so shocking that Galileo was arrested and almost put to death. Luckily, he didn’t die – and during his life he also found time to invent a telescope, a pendulum clock and a cannonball-aiming device. Science, boring? NOT!
