Aim: Separate the pieces. Can you rebuild the globe?


Galileo Galilei (1564 - 1642)

Italian scientist and astronomer.


As well as the telescope, he also developed the compass and the thermometer. He claimed tha the earth was not the centre of the universe but that the planets, including earth, orbited around the sun. A controversial theory at the time! By watching a lamp swinging in a cathedral he made discoveries about the perpetual motion of a pendulum. He worked out that a cannonball fired from a cannon follows a special kind of curve called a parabula. His fabled experiment at the top of the leaning tower of Pisa demonstrated that objects of different weights will fall at the same speed.


  • Finished in an antique style to give the puzzle an aged look.

  • Inspired by the Italian sixteenth century Astronomer, Galileo.
