But in 1585, having started in mathematics outside the classroom, college dropout with nothing to title, although it had acquired a taste for philosophy and literature.In 1589 he got a square, low-paid, in the Pisa study. He wrote a text on the movement, which remained unpublished, in which he criticized the views of Aristotle about the free fall of the bassand the movement of projectiles, a tradition apocryphal, but highly publicized, credited his enlightened criticism with a series of public experiments performed from atop the Campanile of Pisa.
In 1592 he occupied a chair of mathematics at Padua and began a fruitful period of his scientific life, dealt with military architecture and topography, made several mechanical inventions, he resumed hisstudies and discovered the isochronous movement of the pendulum. In 1599 he joined the young Venetian Marina Gamba, who split in 1610 after taking her two daughters and a son.In July 1609 he visited Venice and learned about the manufacture of the telescope, whose improvement is devoted, and which made the first observations of the Moon also discovered four satellites of Jupiter and observed thephases of Venus, a phenomenon that could only explained if one accepted the heliocentric hypothesis of Copernicus.
