Because he helped define gravity.


He found evidence to support the Copernican theory that the sun (and not the earth) is the center of the solar system. He found that evidence by using a large telescope he built himself, and making observations of the planets.

But he was forced by the Inquisition with threats of death to deny his findings. Later studies proved him right.
