[Perspectives] Galileo—speaking truth to power

Galileo Galilei was a great catch. When, in 1612, he joined the Accademia dei Lincei in Rome, Italy, it was but 9 years old. The academy had been started by four young men excited by the idea that science was the way to understand the world. Galileo founded modern science in Italy and was famous for it. He looked at the stars and made observations, he did experiments, he reasoned, he argued. And, importantly, he questioned received wisdom. He fought it, shredded it, mercilessly showed its flaws.
