The GALILEO Factor
Take the Galileo Factor for Your Weight Class and Multiply It

(NOTE: At this time, the Galileo Factor is simply "for fun," and
has not been approved by NASA's Executive Commitee.)

The Galileo Factor is named as a tribute to Bishop Edmond Galileo Hou-Seye, who changed his middle name to "Galileo," to honor the Italian Astronomer who challenged the Catholic Church's position that the Sun orbited the Earth. Things ARE NOT always as they appear to be. In the Powerlifting Universe, one Athlete can appear to be Stronger than another Athlete, merely because of the Equipment he/she is wearing. The Galileo Factor challenges those who "think" they are stronger, by giving their Unequipped Peers a Multiplier , in order to help Level the Playing Field.
