Makes a great gift item and lastingconversation piece! Galileo Galilei, the pioneer of modern astronomyand physics, (1564-1642), discovered that liquids change density as thetemperature increases or decreases. Based on this principle, the coloredglass spheres inside the glass Galileo thermometer have been preciselyweighted so that they respond to temperature changes. When thetemperature rises, the liquid inside the Galileo thermometer becomesless dense and the colored spheres floating inside will sink towards thebottom. When the temperature of the room cools, the process is reversedand the spheres will rise from the bottom.
