    • This is Galileo’s telescope – the one he used to figure out that the planets were revolving around the sun, and not around the Earth…
  • Venus
    • … and this is how clear the planet Venus appeared through that telescope.
  • Hubble Telescope
    • This is the Hubble Space Telescope, a long way from Galileo’s telescope…
    • … and these are the images it can take from across millions of light years.
  • Model T Ford 1908

    • launched into
    • space.
    • It travelled around the earth for 22 days and was capable of measuring atmospheric pressure.
  • Voyager 1, 1977
    • Voyager, by comparrison, travelled throughout our solar system, taking pictures and measurements of our planets for the first time.
