Photograph - Photograph
This image, illustrating an experiment proposed by Father Mersenne, contemporary and friend of Galileo, to test the behavior of falling bodies, is an enhancement of a woodcut taken from the correspondence of Rene Descartes. The French caption reads "Retombera-t-il?" ("Will it fall?").
