2009 was the 400th Anniversary of Galileo's invention of his telescope.
To celebrate this great occasions my friends, at the firm of ‘Science Replicas’, have produced a working model of his original telescope; but get this, they have manufactured this AS A PAPER KIT (and no kidding, it actually works!).
In fact, the kit for this telescope, which has a length of 38 cm, offers you a 10-times magnification which very roughly corresponds to that used by the great Italian himself at the beginning of the 17th century. That kit is supplied complete with high-quality acrylic lenses, No.1 and No.9, thus producing a class of image that the great scientist could not even have dreamed of in his days.......comes complete with guide.
|Galileo Galilei (15 February 1564 – 8
January 1642) was a Tuscan physicist, mathematician, astronomer, and
philosopher who played a major role in the scientific revolution. His
achievements include improvements to the telescope and consequent
astronomical observations, and support
Galileo has been called the "father of modern observational astronomy" the "father of modern physics", the "father of science", and “the Father of Modern Science. The motion of uniformly accelerated objects, taught in nearly all high school and introductory college physics courses, was studied by Galileo as the subject of kinematics. His contributions to observational astronomy include the telescopic confirmation of the phases of Venus, the discovery of the four largest satellites of Jupiter, named the Galilean moons in his honour, and the observation and analysis of sunspots. Galileo also worked in applied science and technology, improving compass design.
And how much is this lovely little
