the roman were the first people to discover glass, as they experimented with is they found it can enlarge stuff and start fires!
son do you want to help me make something new with the lense and the tube?
many changes and updates have been made to microscopes...
the most powerful microscope was the electron microscope!
"During the 1st century AD (year 100), glass had been invented and the Romans were looking through the glass and testing it. They discovered that if you held one of these “lenses” over an object, the object would look larger.Someone also discovered that you can focus the rays of the sun with one of these special “glasses” and start a fire. Sometime about the year 1590, two Dutch spectacle makers, Zaccharias Janssen and his father Hans started experimenting with these lenses. They put several lenses in a tube and made an incredible discovery. much larger than any simple magnifying glass could achieve by itself! They had just invented the compound microscope (which is a microscope that uses two or more lenses). over time the microscope has evolved and changed to were now we have World's Most Powerful Microscope. Its ability to make images to a resolution of half the width of a hydrogen atom makes it the most powerful microscope in the world." The earliest microscopes were known as “flea glasses” because they were used to study small insects.
