Galileo y sin embargo se mueve - parte 8 de 12
En 1633, la inquisición sometió a Galileo Galillei a un proceso en el que se vio obligado a ponerse de rodillas y abjurar de sus teorías acerca del movimiento de la tierra.

Según cuenta la tradición, al levantarse murmuró: "!Eppur, si muove!"

2.4.4 Manipulation

Suppose I take a digital photograph of myself for my website. Horrified by my wrinkled, baggy appearance, what can I do? Actually, with the right software I can do more or less anything I like: I can smooth out the wrinkles; I can restore the grey hair to its former splendour; I can even put in a background of books to give me a scholarly appearance.
