Discoveries & Inventions the law of the pendulum: This later was used to regulate clocks Telescope: This took many years to create but with this invention I was able to discover what you all know to be called sunspots. These sunspots showed that the Sun is on an axis and with that discovery I was able to discover that the Earth is on an axis as well. This invention also made the discovery of Jupiter's moons, that Venus went through phases
Discoveries & Inventions (Continued) Law of Inertia: Most objects that are in a state of motion do Not stay in that state of motion. Along with the telescope I invented the thermometer and magnets
Tower Of Pisa I proved Aristotle's law of nature, that heavier objects fall faster than lighter objects to be false.
