The correct answer to this question is Galileo. He is the father of science because he introduced a new logic about how astronomy and how the solar system worked. He invented a number of tools that are still used in science today, which include a thermometer, compass, and telescope.

Galileo's telescope was a major discovery because it allowed him to see the sky as it had never been seen before. He discovered that Jupiter had 4 objects surrounding it, which was later proven to be moons surrounding the planet. Galileo has a number of famous quotes that are used in science today.

There's more than one name put forward as The Father of Science. This is because Science has a number of disciplines within its massive area. It is common practice to point to Galileo because he created the approach to scientific study, the scientific method, by which a hypothesis is formed and then tested out in carefully controlled and recorded circumstances.

Galileo was named as the father of science by Stephen Hawking, the great scientist of our own era. Galileo is also considered to be the father of modern physics...but so is Einstein, so is Newton. However, neither of them is the father of Biology, say, or of other great areas of Science.

Galileo is known as the father of science. It was he who taught that answers derived from logic were insufficient. Observation is crucial, and in essence this involves scientific recording and measurement. Certainly Stephen Hawking considered Galileo to have made the greatest contribution to modern science than any other person in history.

Galileo's discoveries covered physics and dynamics. He advocated 'scientific method' Even so, many people regard Newton and others, Einstein. It's possible that there were other notable scientific thinkers before Galileo was born, but we can only go on what is recorded.
