this series honors Galileo Galilei (1564-1642)

If I had a Time Machine

I'd pick up Galileo and bring him here to the year 2000!
I'd invite a Florentine-speaking friend to come along,
who'd tell the Professor from Padua "not to freak out at all these electric lights"
and that "there's a rocket ship with your name on it!"
We can see things that you could only believe to be true.
Take a look: this all happened because you were right.
We remember you, Galileo!
