Galileo – Thunderbolt and lightning very very frightening me shirt
Galileo’s championing of heliocentrism and Copernicanism was controversial during his lifetime, when most subscribed to either geocentrism or the Tychonic system.

My 12 year old niece just told me today that she likes Queen and Guns n’ Roses. Can’t do much for the latter (though Gn’R had some good songs — I should have asked which) but Queen? Super super proud. Freddie Mercury died over 10 years before she was even born. She attributes her taste in music (which ranges from classic rock to hard rock and from punk to metal) to the Rockband series of games, on which her father played drums.
Have a nice time with us!
My personal favorites are “A Kind of Magic” and “Somebody to Love.” I sang in Rockband, and “Somebody to Love” is anything but easy. I don’t enjoy singing any Queen, if I’m being honest… but I love listening to it. One of rock’s greatest singers, gone far too soon.
