Galileo’s Battle for the Heavens

Today on Discovery Enterprise as part of our year long celebration of the International Year of Astronomy we present this two-hour special, in which we celebrate the story of Galileo Galilei, 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.
