Introduction provided by Karol Wight, executive director, The Corning Museum of Glass.
Marvin Bolt, curator of science and technology, The Corning Museum of Glass.
Recorded in the auditorium, The Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, New York, October 9, 2014.
In 1608, the telescope's unveiling took place at a peace conference between Dutch and Spanish authorities. Which aspects of glass prevented the telescope's invention until 1608, and then enabled its quick spread? Over the past decade, Dr. Marvin Bolt, curator of science and technology at The Corning Museum of Glass and his colleagues have located over 1,000 telescopes made before 1775. Join us to see what these early telescopes and lenses look like as Dr. Bolt explores how people used them for diverse purposes.
