Description:

Galileo used his telescope to gather data about the heavens, and his observations and theories sparked much controversy. This video segment discusses Galileo's observations of sunspots, which challenged the current church doctrine that celestial objects were pristine and unblemished, and even demonstrated that the sun rotated. The segment is three minutes forty-two seconds in length. A background essay and discussion questions are included.
