Korte omschrijving 📚

In 1609, Galileo fits two lenses inside a cylindrical tube, aims the tube at the sky, and forever changes the world. “Seeing and Believing” tells the story, discovery by discovery, of the telescope, one of the few inventions that have revolutionized our view of the universe and how we fit into it. From Galileo himself to William Herschel who discovered Uranus, to George Ellery Hale who found both Mount Wilson and Mount Palomar observatories. Most fascinating is the character of the telescope itself, which designed solely to help us determine our place in the scheme of things, is an evolving metaphor for how we see ourselves.
