  2. “Galileo was not the first person to invent the telescope but was the first to turn one toward the night sky“

    During the 17th century, the Roman Catholic church believed that the Earth was the center of the universe and those who tried to prove them wrong were in danger of being accused of heresy. Helios is the story of how an idea found his innovator, triggering a series of consequences in time. The date is 1609, Italy, late at night at Galileo Galilei’s workplace. He is watching the sky, studying celestial bodies and focusing on the moon. He prepares to see this unexplored world with his customized telescope while some of his sketches and notes rest on the floor. After a gently approaching the telescope, he sees the moon through it –a celestial body full of enigmas and intrigues for any human eye. After a moment, a bright light invades the scene around him, but he does not notice it. This light resembles the silhouette of the invention, this enigmatic form splits into three muses.

    These three muses approach Galileo and start touching his back, resting next to him and pointing to the sky. Galileo starts watching the moon differently. He starts spotting data that he had not seen before, now seeming to understand how the moon works and why. He draws what he sees and repares himself to present this to cardinal Bellarmine at church, in order, to prove that the Earth is not the center of the universe, but orbits around the Sun, just like the Moon around the Earth.

    Galileo’s discovery fundamentally alters the way humans perceive themselves in the
    cosmos.
