Summary
A documentary of Galileo's life during the seventeenth century, with his heroic efforts to spread his knowledge of the heavens. Letters from his daughter, Maria Celeste, a cloistered nun, have shed new light on Galileo's trial for heresy, his Scientific discoveries, and his defense of his revolutionary theory that the earth revolves around the sun
