"They caught Number One in Malaysia. Number Two in England. And Number Three in Kenya. They tried to catch Number Four in Ohio—and failed. I am Number Seven. One of six still alive. And I'm ready to fight."
Galileo’s Telescope. Galileo worked at his lenses, first creating one to the power of six and then improving it until he achieved lenses to the power of twenty. At that point in the depths of the winter of 1610 he trained upon the Moon his long and narrow telescope—a telescope covered like the gold-tooled leather souvenir notebooks and bookends sold in Florence today. In so doing he became the first to see the Moon accurately.
