Summary

Collection of natural science, astronomy and ancient technology images from various sources selected by BibliOdyssey.

An important invention of the Renaissance was the microscope. Invented in 1590, the microscope was a major help in other scientific discoveries. The microscope uses two different lenses to bend light and enlarge images. Therefore, a person could see things that were too tiny to observe with the naked eye. In 1660, the microscope was used to study bacteria for the first time. A microscope at that time could enlarge images 270 times their normal size.

Until the 12th century human anatomy was mainly learned through books and animal dissection.
