When Galileo later complained of rumors to the effect that he had been forced to abjure and do penance, Bellarmine wrote out a certificate denying the rumors, stating that Galileo had merely been notified of the decree and informed that, as a consequence of it, the Copernican doctrine could not be " defended or held ".

The camera system was designed to obtain images of Jupiter's satellites at resolutions from 20 to 1, 000 times better than Voyager's best, because Galileo flew closer to the planet and its inner moons, and because the more modern CCD sensor in Galileos camera was more sensitive and had a broader color detection band than the vidicons of Voyager.
Galileo also performed mechanical experiments, and insisted that motion itself — regardless of whether that motion was natural or artificial — had universally consistent characteristics that could be described mathematically.
However, many of the ideas, particularly as pertain to inertia ( impetus ) and falling bodies had been developed and stated by earlier researchers, both the then-recent Galileo and the less-known medieval predecessors.
