The Story of the Telescope, or How We Found Our Place in the Universe.

In 1609, Galileo fits two lenses inside a cylindrical tube, aims the tube at the sky, and forever changes the world.

'Seeing And Believing' tells the story, discovery by discovery, of the telescope, one of the few inventions that has revolutionised our view of the universe and our place in it. It focuses on the often larger-than-life figures whose insights and breakthroughs made our cosmological odyssey possible.

Richard Panek has written an engaging and spirited chronicle of the humbling journey that has made humans smaller and the universe infinitely vaster than we ever imagined.
