Social Musings 101: The Telescope

So in this posting of people who have contributed to society we discuss none other than ┬áHans Lippershey. Mr. Lippershey’s contribution was the telescope. I know many of us have watched the doom and gloom end of the world movies. Yes, all those movies were made because scientists and others have the power to see extremely far distances in space. We can see further into space because of Mr. Lippershey and others who thought along the lines of Mr. Lippershey. As a result of this new invention are minds have been expanded and opened to the vast limitlessness of the universe as well. So the next time you go to an observatory give Mr. Lippershey a quiet Thank You for what he’s done and his contribution that’s made our lives easier.
