Famous Mummified Bodies
Galileo Galilei has been called the father(s) of modern science, observational astronomy and modern physics. He has a list of accomplishments as long as his arm, though his arm and fingers were under house arrest by the Inquisition during his last years of life due to his belief that the sun was the center of the universe, not the Earth. Of course when he died, his body wouldnt remain at his house and his finger didnt remain with his body either. Galileos finger is on display at the Museo di Storia del Scienza in Italy after it was removed by Anton Francesco Gori in 1737. Just shy of a century after his death, Galileos body was transferred from a small closet to a newly built mausoleum.
