The history of the telescope is a rich story of ingenuity and perseverance involving some of the most colourful figures of the scientific world.
It begins in ancient times, gathers momentum through the Renaissance, with the first recorded telescope bursting onto the scene in the middle of a diplomatic crisis in seventeenth century Holland, and takes us to the limits of space with the cutting-edge telescopes of today.
