Galileo’s Dialogue

In 1632, Galileo published the now famous Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems, a book presented as a dialogue between three people supporting the idea that the planets orbited the sun (heliocentricity). A year later, he was forced to denounce his own work by the church because it was seen as heresy against the traditional idea that the sun and other planets orbited the Earth (geocentricity). Data generated from the dialogue are presented below as rays eminating a sun in celebration of Galileo’s clever method of supporting heliocentricity with common dialogue, which made it more approachable for the public—a valuable contribution to the scientific revolution.
