We find that Fermi arcs terminate on the Weyl fermion nodes, consistent with their topological character. Our work opens the field for the experimental study of Weyl fermions in physics and materials science.

What Galileo Saw is an exceptionally serious and intelligent discussion of issues that tend to transcend the disciplinary boundaries of the history of science. At the same time, Lawrence Lipking displays state-of-the-art command of the historical scholarship, especially striking in the cases of Galileo, Hooke, and Newton.

Opposition to heliocentrism and Galileo's writings combined scientific and religious objections. Scientific opposition came from Tycho Brahe and others and arose from the fact that, if heliocentrism were true, an annual stellar parallax should be observed, though none was at the time. This book has received high praise from Albert Einstein. As a result of this work, Galileo is often called the "father of modern physics". Galileo's discovery of the phases of Venus was thus arguably his most empirically practically influential contribution to the two-stage transition from full geocentrism to full heliocentrism via geo-heliocentrism.

What a great book on Galileo told in an interesting story-like manner. There is a nice balance between his life and scientific work,nicely translated by Laura Fermi, widow of the famous Italian physicist Enrico Fermi of atomic reactor fame...I liked the short digressions to inform us of the times in which Galileo lived and struggled so much...The well-balanced view on the Inquisition which sentenced Galileo is nicely written...I have read five different books on Galileo---this is the best small-volume introduction to Galileo...essential reading for scientists and science teachers in high schools and colleges

For all of Galileos importance to modern science, this book is very brief! I would have preferred more details, both of his life and of his career..

but what do you expect with only just over a hundred pages...

I did get most of the basic information on his life and may delve further now that my curiosity has been peaked...

however, I was able to write the report I needed to for my Astonomy class and received an A on my paper!

Good book. Galileo's time at the University of Padua beginning in 1592 is critical information related to Nicholas of Cusa on indivisibles. In a footnote, Galiileo speaks of Cusa as the 'learned doctor.' Galileo says that Cusa spoke of imperceptible motions. Today, the imperceptible motion is called the 'principlre of least action.' This principle originates in the maximum-minimum principle of Cusa and was used in the geometry developed by Kepler on planetary force-free motions. From Cusa, Galileo learned that all God-made wholes have an infinite number of indivisible parts. Cusa, not Galileo, was thus the first modern scientist.

We can thus distinguish man-made wholes from God-made wholes. The man-made whole consist of a countable number of parts whereas the God-made whole has an uncountable number of parts. The man-made whole is often said to be 'the sum of its parts whereas the God-made whole is often said to be 'more than the sum of its parts.'

Based on the work of Cusa and Galileo, today's physical science can be challenged.
