Featuring Maria Celeste:
Galileo's Daughter

The Galileo Project is a source of information on the life and work of Galileo Galilei (1564-1642). Our aim is to provide hypertextual information about Galileo and the science of his time to viewers of all ages and levels of expertise. What you read and see here is a beginning -- we will continue to add and update information as it becomes available. We solicit contributions from our colleagues in the history of science and comments on how we can improve the project from everyone, particularly suggestions on how to make this tool more useful in primary and secondary education.

This project is currently supported by the Office of the Vice President of Computing of Rice University. The initial stages of the project were made possible by a grant from the Council on Library Resources to Fondren Library.
