Comment on Cardwell, “Galileo” (Father of the Scientific Method) by jordanlloyd

Tejas,

Galileo contributed greatly to the concepts of modern science, particularly astronomy and physics. He quantified the ideas of work, power, and energy; a big step in understanding the conservation of energy and the concept of inertia.

The scientific methods of Galileo live on and will continue to live on well into the future of science and innovation!
