Galileo's Impact On Modern Science

According to Stephen Hawking, Galileo probably bears more of the responsibility for the birth of modern science than anybody else, and Albert Einstein called him the father of modern science.
Galileo's astronomical discoveries and investigations into the Copernican theory have led to a lasting legacy which includes the categorisation of the four large moons of Jupiter discovered by Galileo (Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto) as the Galilean moons. Other scientific endeavours and principles are named after Galileo including the Galileo spacecraft, the first spacecraft to enter orbit around Jupiter, the proposed Galileo global satellite navigation system, the transformation between inertial systems in classical mechanics denoted Galilean transformation and the Gal (unit), sometimes known as the Galileo, which is a non-SI unit of acceleration.
From my perspective, some respect should be shown to the great scientists. Science is the most desirable thing in the world. Today is September 15, 2016, Chinese traditional festival, the Mid-Autumn festival. China sent its second space laboratory, the Tiangong II, into orbit from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in Northwest China's Gobi desert on Thursday night.
The infographic design which I have finished is to show respect to the Galileo Galilei, who is a great scientist I have been admiring.
From my perspective, science should be attached great importance and be worshipped. When I was a teenager, I imaged that I could be a scientist one day. I was doing research and analyzing data everyday. Then something changed. Now, I am a designer. My respect to science has been shown by my project.
