2 HipparchusHipparchus created the world’s first accurate star map in 130 B.C. He created this map by his own knowledge of mathematics and observations of the stars.
3 Galileo GalileiIn 1609 Galileo made improvements on the telescope. With his improvements he was able to discover four of Jupiter’s moons, cycles of Venus and was one of the first to study sunspots.
