By dropping objects of the same size but different weights from the Leaning Tower of Pisa Galileo showed that this wasn't true. In 1609 Galileo constructed his first telescope. He used it to observe the stars and the planets. He saw things that nobody had ever seen before. Galileo discovered that the moon's surface was not smooth and flat, like everyone thought, but had a rough surface and was full of craters.
