Have you ever wanted to go back in time to see how the world was before your birth?

developed the science of observation and experiment with its ownmethods. Therefore,
because of this Galileo created the telescope; that which otherwise the one created by the
Dutch distort objects and the image or anything you see, looks awful. As a result,Galileo
was mentioned as a remarkable scientist who made valuable contributions to astronomy and
physics during the Renaissance. Besides that, the experimental method and direct
observation was thebasis for modern science.
Approximately, in the fifteenth century, printing was invented by the scientist John
Gutenberg who invented movable type letters and replaced by molten metal timber. Inthe
Renaissance, the printing press was the most powerful vehicle for transmitting new ideas.
Starting the fifteenth century was printed with religious pictures. By application of, a
