Did You Know?
The first practical telescope, was invented by Hans Lippershey in the Netherlands in 1608, Galileo, based only on uncertain descriptions, in the following year, made a telescope with about 3x magnification. The name "telescope" was coined for Galileo's instrument by a Greek mathematician, Giovanni Demisiani, at a banquet held in 1611 by Prince Federico Cesi to make Galileo a member of his Accademia dei Lincei. The name was derived from the Greek tele = 'far' and skopein = 'to look or see'.
