I think he's the guy who helped prove the Earth rotated. He used a huge pendulum, now known as Foucault's pendulum, and hung it from the center of a giant stadium. (probably the colloseum types) so it was at rest. then it began to move on its own because the earth was rotating. I think that's what Foucault is famous for.
