Galileo Reflector Telescope: How was it created?

The human being, by origin has always had a great curiosity about the mysterious things of life, everything that looks, hears or feels it generates questions, that need to be answered by the logic, taking it to the level of experimenting with the things to have a Perfect interpretation of what is or is not before your eyes. Hence, the creation of the Galileo Reflector telescope.

Because of this, inventions that revolutionize human life, which help to understand the riddles of life, are referred to as the inventation of the Galileo reflector telescope. Where his first steps arise through a graphic sketch, in which he would include the things that would be used, the way in which he would be elaborated and the AS/for that would work.

Well, all technological invention, originates in a graphic that helps the person to see what he wants to elaborate; Throughout history this has been proven, because the first steps always occur with the blissful planes.

Following this order of ideas, Galileo was an intrepid, curious, extroverted man who thought of the illogical to convert it into cognitive, seeking explanations where there were no, with the intention of evolving human knowledge, for him, to see beyond his Eyes, was what made him excited to show to the generation the verification of the theories of the other scientists who antecedían him.

It was there, where he wanted to solve the questions: How is the moon?, existence of other planets?, what are the stars? Among many more. Of that form visualized that the glasses or crystals somehow generated an increase that knowing use, allowed to see from short to long distance, based on this he came up with the idea of increasing his composition to see a long distance, in this case his serious challenge sees R the Moon from Earth, but with a high capacity device giving rise to the Galileo Reflector telescope.

What is a telescope and what does it do?

It is an indispensable tool, that through its optical lenses and concave mirrors, allows the visualization of something that is at a great distance, in a more detailed way, of what is seen with the naked eye. Thus offering an enlarged image of the object in question. And it is used by astronomers, to make observations to the sky and to capture the celestial bodies with greater clarity in the presence of the electromagnetic radiations that are shown in the glass lens of the artifact.

In addition, four hundred years ago was born the Galileo Reflector telescope, which helped redefine our place in the universe, since its creation shook and altered society from its roots, becoming the boom in the history of humanity that would help To contemplate extraordinary things of the galaxy, from there, the invention was the step for the generation of new studies that would contribute with the knowledge of the unexplored that became accessible for the people.

Which allowed us to elevate our eyes to heaven and perceive the majestic opportunity that would have stood before ourselves, helping to understand, that we were the center of creation, and there were reasons for it: From our perspective, everything seems to revolve around the Earth (but It may all revolve around us).

Therefore, when one osaba to defy this notion of the world, his voice was silent by the religious powers, since nothing can leave the field of the visible, the comfort zone, because to go beyond what we know, is to break the rules of tranquility and generate anomalies, Phenomena that should not be discovered, but all this hard until, between 1608 and 1609, the bandage was removed from the eyes.

In other words, the Galileo scientist presented an invention that was the title of the Galileo Reflector telescope, which contributed to the verification of the Moon, the Celestial Bodies (stars) and the spinning rocks of molecular masses with atoms and protons called (planets). Giving an extraordinary twist the artifact in the evolution of that tube with two lenses called “telescope”.

Design, function and controversy of the Galileo Reflector telescope

Galileo’s telescope design is based on a convex lens for the lens and another concave lens in the eyepiece. On the basis of this, another scientist wanted to contribute to the improvement of this artifact and in 1611 the German Johannes Kepler, was the first to use two convex lenses that focused the rays at the same point, which allowed an excellent improvement in the process.

Adjusting to the subject, Galileo went to the powers of knowledge, to the verification of the unknown, to his idealism “to see to believe”, showing it to humanity what was real for him, thus revealing the existence with tests of the moons of Jupiter and the ears of Saturn.

Also, it caused a great controversy in its time especially in the religions because “the principal purpose of the church is not to determine how the skies go, but how to go to the heavens, because at the time the human being will die and his soul to where anger” , he said to the presides. What Galileo did with the telescope was too daring, because his purpose and ideal that he vigorously defended, he ended his days arrested in a homely and intellectually forgotten.

However, his legacy would not remain forever hidden, because in the year that Galileo died, the child was born to complete his revolution this child was “Isaac Newton” gave us a new image of the universe that survived 250 years, then continued continuity until ” Einstein. ” One of the phrases that endure in the time of these (Monsters of science) in a good way is: “If I have managed to see further has been because I have climbed on the shoulders of giants.”

The legacy of an inheritance

Galileo’s legacy was the research discovered and revealed to the world. Later Newton improved the invention of the reflector telescope, which is the main one of what we know today. The improvement to the stethoscope consisted in using mirrors instead of lenses to focus the light and form images. Then the universe opened up to us in all its splendor. Thus allowing us to see towards the past and driving towards the future, to know and to reveal what had not been discovered this then.

On the other hand, in the knowledge of the planets, the stars, the world, among other things, we call that science as astronomy is to say the science to go and see more than it is to the naked eye, explore the unexplored and understand what is not defensible in its moment , which refers to: the farther we look, the more we go into the past.

However, what Galileo began will have a great continuity of improvement, he was the promoter of the discovery of the mysteries and the solution of the illogical, which gave rise to the astronomical technology that we know today.

In a way, Galileo’s reflector telescope was a major base for the studies of scientists coming after him.
