Read in January, 2011

It reveals a similiar theme as Frankenstain. The knowledge of the science sometimes leads to the evilness. In this case, Galileo's knowledge was viewed as opposing the church. He was not a great man, since he took back his words after the instruments were shown to him. However, I think he was just a normal man, a man who feared the death and physical pain, a man who was curious for the surrounding, a man who worked for the profits, a man who bent because of the circumstances. He was one of the most importance scientists.
