1597: Constructed a military compass. Brought him acclaim and a substantial income.
1609: Built a ‘telescope’ (Although he was not the first to do so.) This enabled him to: See craters on the moon, which previously thought to be a smooth sphere. Discover four moons around Jupiter, the only planet to have a moon was earth. Observe Venus shows phases (just like the moon of Earth.)
1610:Publish his findings in a book called Sidereus Nuncius (The Sidereal Messenger).
It was in 1609, that Galileo observed the moons of Jupiter, now known as the Galilean Moons, which he recorded in his treatise, the Sidereus Nuncius, published in 1610. The observation was very controversial as it proved that Earth was not the only center of movement in the universe. It also lent support to the idea that Earth moved around the Sun, a heretical belief which eventually led to Galileo's imprisonment.
