"The Case Galileo" is one of a series of educational videos about astronomy. In this 25-minute video Dr. Jérôme Lamy, historian of science at the Centre for Social Anthropology at the University of Toulouse II, France, tells the story of the astronomical discoveries of Galileo Galilei and how Galileo's views of the working of the Universe led to his trial in 1633.
