Leeuwenhoek VS Ruska The Invention Of the
was Invented by
Anton Van
Leeuwenhoek Royal
Society The Church had mixed
feeling about his discovery
but made no effort to challenge Anton, since most of his evidence is impressive. Anton Van Leeuwenhoek
died on August 26 1723.
During his lifetime, he made
about 500 microscope lenses, and about 25 microscopes. After he had decease, his family sold all of his microscopes and none were recovered. Despite all of his accurate findings, he still praise God for being so wonderful, for creating such little organisms or cells. Think Have you ever thought about the significance behind every single living organism? Ever try exploring? One scientist in the year 1653 under the name of Anton Van Leeuwenhoek discovered a miracle no one had imagined. Well This Person Did. Who was this guy? Anton Van Leewenhooke was a scientist during the Scientific Revolution who invented a powerful tool that forever changed the way we human think about the world. But first. Answer Briefly In your own words What exactly is the Scientific Revolution? What Did He Invented? The Scientific Revolution is the
period in history, where sciences such as physics, math, medicine, biology and chemistry flourished. Which changed the views of people and the society. He was born in 1632 He was from Holland, therefore he was a Dutchman. He started out as a apprentice at a dry good store and as he was examining a magnifying glass, he became inspired and taught himself methods of polishing lenses. Using his precise polishing skills he created a special type of lens with the magnification up to 270 times. 1653 he created the world's first microscope. Using his hand crafted microscope, he was able to observe and study various things, both living and nonliving. He discovered bacteria He discovered spermatozoon He also discovered the muscle fiber pattern. Another discovery he made is the plant cell's vacuole. What is the Royal Society? The Royal Society is one of the world's oldest scientific academy which opened up in 1660. Up to this day, it still existed. http://royalsociety.org/ One of Leeuwenhoek biggest achievements is that he got all of his works and observations published by the Royal Society. Aside from getting all of his hardwork published he was also appointed as a Fellow of the Royal Society, which means that he had gotten a high position in the Society. Anton was a Dutch reformed Calvinist One interesting thing he founded was that there were tiny microbe organisms in pond water. Ernest
Ruska Ernest Ruska was a German inventor who invented the electron microscope. He was born in 1906 and was from Heidelberg Germany. Along side with his partner Max Knoll, Ruska invented the world's first electron microscope. He figured out that microscopes powered by electrons were far more powerful than light microscopes or simple microscopes. Ruska had won the Nobel Peace Prize and he also serve as the head director for the Fritz Haber Insitution. The discovery of the microscopes had improve the human's lives greatly. Before there was microscopes, humans could not identified the reason why we are constantly ill. Therefore the average life span of early human beings were short. Everything that happens inside the human body takes place at cellular level. With the invention of the microscope we are now able to identify various bacteria or virus and help provide medication. Everything before the invention of the microscopes were thought to be the acts of God. We had no explanation for sickness or disease. Therefore after the invention, we gained the knowledge were weren't able to have before. By Le Wu And Nick Ernest decease on May 27 1988 How has the microscope made a contribution to both Science and the society? How did it effect our life today? http://www.ovguide.com/anton-van-leeuwenhoek-9202a8c04000641f80000000000543fa
