In Mario Livio's new book of the same title, the author offers a fresh biography of Galileo Galilei, which puts his scientific discoveries in the context of today's knowledge.
Disturbed by rampant science denial in America—and around the world—that has only intensified in recent years, Dr Livio began researching the life, ideas, and actions of this brilliant man who encountered similar pressures centuries ago. The result is a fascinating biography filled with lessons relevant for today, whether with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic or climate change. Dr Livio will discuss several of these topics in this talk.
