Space Travel. Did you know that planet Neptune was first observed by Galileo Galilei on December 28, 1612? A great moment! Although he mistakenly cataloged it as a fixed star.
Space travel! Today, on December 28, 2014, Yareah honors Galileo Galilei and every scientist who dared to look beyond!
“I think that in the discussion of natural problems we ought to begin not with the Scriptures, but with experiments, and demonstrations.” Galileo Galilei.
Neptune is the eighth and farthest planet from the Sun in the Solar System. It is the fourth-largest planet by diameter and the third-largest by mass. So blue and beautiful! Neptune is 17 times the mass of Earth!

** Galileo Galilei (Pisa (Italy), on February 15, 1564 – Arcetri, on January 8, 1642). Galileo has been called the ‘father of modern observational astronomy,’ the ‘father of modern physics,’ and the ‘father of modern science.’
His achievements include improvements to the telescope and subsequent astronomical observations as well as support for Copernicanism.
“It vexes me when they would constrain science by the authority of the Scriptures, and yet do not consider themselves bound to answer reason and experiment.” Galileo Galilei.
