Light and Telescope
Transcript of Light and Telescope
Newton, Isaac (1642-1727) He also developed theories of color after he discovered that white light was actually made up particles and of various colors. This line of study would lead him to invent a device which helped to seal his reputation as a scientific visionary, the reflecting telescope. Telescope http://web.mit.edu/invent/iow/newton.html http://galileoandeinstein.physics.virginia.edu/lectures/spedlite.html In connection with this creation Newton wrote up his theory of colors, which argued that light is composed of particles, published in his “Hypothesis of Light” of 1675. Mr.Newton created the theory that light was faster than sound Newton created a telescope called the Newtonian reflecting telescope as it came to be called was much smaller than the refracting telescopes common to the time, and magnified over 30 times despite its six-inches long and one-inch diameter size. Light Attempts to measure the speed of light played an important part in the development of the theory of special relativity, and, indeed, the speed of light is central to the theory Speed of light Light and telescope By, Tavion Jones and Kiara Mundy
