Programme
6 pm Lecture: Lens or mirror? The competition of telescopes: from Galileo Galilei and Johannes Kepler to Wilhelm Herschel
Galileo Galilei is considered one of the most important astronomers. He developed a telescope and observed the sky with it. However, the telescope was invented and patented earlier, in 1608 in Holland. It spread quickly and other astronomers made further discoveries. Johannes Kepler researched optics and improved the telescope into an astronomical refracting telescope. Some time later, the reflecting telescope was also invented. This story reaches a climax with Wilhelm Herschel. He was able to discover the planet Uranus in 1781 by developing his metal refracting telescope. A sensation!
Speaker: Prof. Dr. em. Gudrun Wolfschmidt (University of Hamburg)
