        Galileo's Thought Experiment

        The heliocentric theory holds that Earth moves around the Sun at great speed, a controversial idea in Galileo's time. Even today, many people are still perplexed by the fact that we don't experience any sense of this motion. This video segment, adapted from NOVA, shows a dramatization of one of Galileo's thought experiments designed to help prove heliocentric theory.
