Galileo Had Similar Challenges With Science Deniers As Modern Day Scientists

Jun 4, 2020

 Cool Science Radio welcomes astrophysicist Mario Livio who has written a new book titled Galileo: And the Science Deniers. Disturbed by rampant science denial in America—and around the world—that has only intensified in recent years, Livio began researching the life, ideas, and actions of Galileo, this brilliant man who encountered similar pressures centuries ago. The result is a biography filled with lessons relevant for today—whether with respect to trusting the advice given by scientists in relation to COVID-19, the reality of climate change, the efficacy of vaccines, or the teaching of creationist theories in schools.
