520    Early scientists such as Galileo, Isaac Newton and Robert 
       Hooke, driven to understand the natural world and how 
       humans fit into it, used what was then new tools, the 
       Telescope and the Microscope, to study the extremes of the
       universe as never before. You will learn about the links 
       between these ancient inventions and today's advanced 
       technologies that allow us to glimpse the edges of the 
       universe. There are also anecdotes covering the 
       discoveries, theories and technology that evolved to 
       improve health care practices and other aspects of 
       everyday life.
