Galileo, Galilei, the Starry Messenger

Fri, October 20, 7pm (Whipple Free Library, New Boston)

The Starry Messenger, presented by Michael Francis, is a dramatic fun-filled adaptation of Galileo’s short treatise "Siderius Nuncius." Galileo (dressed in 17th-century costume) arrives to present a public lecture on his most recent discoveries made using his newly-devised spyglass. As he describes those discoveries, Galileo’s new method of observation and measurement of nature become apparent. Sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities to Go program.
