When Galileo invented the telescope in the early 17th century he just wanted to see the stars and constellations more clearly. He never imaged how his lead pipe with a lens at each end would utterly change the way we view ourselves or our place in the universe. As amateur astronomer Tony Schellinck explains, the technology Galileo used had been around for over 300 years. Ever since that cool November evening when Galileo pointed his spy glass at the night sky, the world and our place in it, have never looked the same.
