Padova and Galileo - 1610-2010 Celebration

If you have noticed that I havent posted anything here in the past two months, it is mainly because I have been preparing a big set of new videos of the Galilean satellites to support the 400th anniversary celebration here in Padova, where the actual event occurred on a cold winter night not unlike the cold weather we are having now. I sit in the cozy comfort of our hotel room this morning overlooking the cold (1°C today) train station uploading video to facebook. It will probably take the rest of the day to complete. I will have more to report tonight after the official reception for the meeting being hosted here. I am supposed to lead a tour of some large posters I contributed to the celebration. In the meantime, I post some stills below as videos continue to upload.
