Galileo co-invented the telescope and founded Western Astronomy.
Kepler's mathematical and observational genius led to the still used laws of planetary motion.
Nicholas Copernicus forever altered man's view of his place in the Universe by proving that the Earth and all the planets revolved around the Sun.
