TELESCOPES

Italian physicist and astronomer "Galileo" is credited in discovering the Telescope in 1609. Through this telescope, Galileo was able to see mountains and craters on the moon. Galileo's telescope had used an arrangement of lenses to magnify objects up to 30 times.

Sir Issac Newton, in 1704 used a curved mirror to gather in light and reflect it back to a point of focus.

However, Telescopes on the ground were vulnerable to our atmosphere illusions.

So in the 1970`s, the "European Space Agency" with the "National Aeronautics and Space Administration" started development on what would become the Hubble Space Telescope. then On April 25, 1990, the space shuttle Discovery deployed the telescope in an orbit some 380 miles (600 km) above the Earth's surface.
