    Have you ever wondered or thought about how the first telescopes were used and how they looked? Throughout history, there have been many inventions and innovations added into a telescope. Telescopes can vary in shape, size, and even color, but are all used for similar reasons. The development of the telescope dates back to around the 1600s and are still being developed and made today. Today, there are several telescopes that can be identified by people who worked and contributed into making some of the very first telescopes. Around 1608, the very first telescope in history was made. This telescope appeared in the Netherlands which was proposed by the national government in The Hague. By them, it was talked about how these devices could make far away things look closer than they really were. The lenses and optics that were put into this device was thought to be first found out in the 10th century by Egyptian physician Alhazen who studied optics for a very long time. These first known telescopes were very basic and not as advanced as telescopes nowadays are.…

    Galileo devoted his time to improving and perfecting the telescope and soon succeeded in producing telescopes of greatly increased power. His first telescope magnified three diameters, but he soon made instruments which magnified eight diameters and finally, one that magnified thirty-three diameters. Hans Lippershey, credited with invention of the telescope. The first person to apply for a patent for a telescope was a Dutch eyeglass maker named Hans Lippershey. In 1608, Lippershey tried to lay…

    A light microscope works like a telescope using glass lenses to reflect light, which magnifies images which are naked to the human eye such as cells and dust. The lens closest to your eye is called the eyepiece lens. This usually has a magnification of x10. Objective lenses are lenses of several different strengths which magnify the image. The stage is the place where the microscopic slide sits. This is held in place by the clips. The light source (can be a mirror or a bulb) projects light onto…

    That would be going against some of our most important rules about not going too close to a planet that we don’t know enough information about. It’s simply too risky.” Mr. Neddis objected. Tenek shifted in his seat. “Ok, I understand Mr. Neddis. I don’t know if you are aware of this or not, but the power is out at the observatory. My electrical telescope won’t work without power. What do you want me to do?” Tenek asked nervously. “I don’t care what you do, just as long you don’t take that…

    The Keck Observatory in Maunakea, Hawaii has made some amazing discoveries over the years, making it one of the most powerful telescopes in the world. Hawaii is a perfect place to have an observatory because it is located on a 13,796 foot summit with very few city lights to pollute the sky around it (Keck, n.d.). Also, the atmosphere in Hawaii for the majority of the year is clear and dry offering the best look at the sky above us. According to Keck’s website, Keck Observatory consists of two…

    Slide Motion Describe the movement of the slide as you move the slide toward/ away from you. Describe the movement of the slide as you move the slide from side to side. Looking at the slide, when the slide moves toward me, the image would seem to move away. Vice versa when the slide moves away, it would come towards me. Similarly, when the slide was moved from right to left, the image would go to the opposite side. So going right the image would seem to go left, and when the slide was moved to…

    1. How are the photographs taken with a 3D microscope different than those taken with a regular camera? How are they similar? The 3D microscope photographs are used to show detail that a regular photograph could not, for example at a crime scene. The similarity is the basic image, it is the same image but the only difference it has with a 3D microscope is the detail shown. 2. How can photography allow us to view the world around us in different ways? Photography captures not a second of the…
