Incorrect Question 1 text
Question 1 answers
Your Answer: Incorrect He was condemned by the Inquisition for inventing the theory that Earth moves around Sun.
Correct Answer: Correct Galileo's "crime" was that he insisted on using human observations to explain heaven's workings.
Feedback: Incorrect. The verdict was never actually reversed. In 1992, a Church Commission forgave the Inquisition for having charged him in the first place.
Incorrect. Copernicus was the first to propose that Earth orbits Sun. Galileo was condemned for disobeying orders given to him not to hold, teach, or defend in any way the ideas of the Earth-centered theory of Copernicus.
Incorrect. Galileo did not invent the telescope. He was the first to observe the sky systematically and use his observations to question theoretical problems of the day.
Incorrect. The verdict was never actually reversed. In 1992, a Church Commission forgave the Inquisition for having charged him in the first place.

  Question 10   Multiple Choice 0 of 1 point(s)  
Incorrect Question 10 text
Question 10 answers
Your Answer: Incorrect Moons orbiting Jupiter, suggesting that Earth is not the only center of revolution.
Correct Answer: Correct Parallax of some stars, suggesting that Earth orbits Sun.
Feedback: Incorrect. Galileo observed the changing phases of Venus, something not predicted by the geocentric model which placed Venus so that it was always between Earth and Sun.
Galileo observed four dots orbiting Jupiter. He interpreted them as moons, which meant that Earth was not unique in being the center of revolution.
Galileo observed sunspots on Sun, raising the suspicion that Sun was not perfect afterall.
The telescopes available to Galileo were not sensitive enough to detect the parallax of even the nearest star beyond Sun. He would no doubt have been more convincing in his arguments to the Church had he been able to detect parallax.

Correct Answer: Correct can be seen shining brightly at the zenith for most observers in the northern hemisphere

Your Answer: Correct The Period of a Planet in Oribit about the sun depends on its Mass.
Correct Answer: Correct The Period of a Planet in Oribit about the sun depends on its Mass.

Kepler is famous for having discovered planetary laws of motion.
Brahe believed that the planets orbit around Sun, but that Sun orbits the stationary Earth.
