Full movie description "Nova Galileo's Battle for the Heavens":In this two-hour special, NOVA celebrates the story of the father of modern science and his struggle to get Church authorities to accept the truth of his astonishing discoveries. The program is based on Dava Sobel's bestselling book, Galileo's Daughter, which reveals a new side to the famously stubborn scientist-that his closest confidante was his illegitimate daughter, Sister Maria Celeste, a cloistered nun.
Reviews of the Nova Galileo's Battle for the HeavensSimon Callow shines in this excellent NOVA production. It is very sympathetic to Galileo's struggle to construct a scientific view of the universe. We hear from modern experts and follow his progress towards the observation that the earth revolves about the sun, thereby coming into conflict with the political power of the time, the dreadful roman catholic church, which maintained that the sun revolved around the earth. This lead to his downfall as the faith bound church slapped him down.
It is clear that Galileo was not backward in coming forward, so we see him also as a tireless self promoter. We also learn about the alternative models of the solar system prevalent at the time, which the telescope clarified, proving the Copernican view.
