At Kidadl we pride ourselves on offering families original ideas to make the most of time spent together at home or out and about, wherever you are in the world. We strive to recommend the very best things that are suggested by our community and are things we would do ourselves - our aim is to be the trusted friend to parents.
We try our very best, but cannot guarantee perfection. We will always aim to give you accurate information at the date of publication - however, information does change, so it’s important you do your own research, double-check and make the decision that is right for your family.
Kidadl provides inspiration to entertain and educate your children. We recognise that not all activities and ideas are appropriate and suitable for all children and families or in all circumstances. Our recommended activities are based on age but these are a guide. We recommend that these ideas are used as inspiration, that ideas are undertaken with appropriate adult supervision, and that each adult uses their own discretion and knowledge of their children to consider the safety and suitability.
Kidadl cannot accept liability for the execution of these ideas, and parental supervision is advised at all times, as safety is paramount. Anyone using the information provided by Kidadl does so at their own risk and we can not accept liability if things go wrong.
Celestial objects have always remained the key to human curiosity, we designed our first telescope way back and the modern telescope that we use today is miles ahead of the earlier telescope which was used by professional astronomers.
Early telescopes weren't so potent in providing information about outer space; the first telescopes helped in the discovery of Jupiter satellites. Today's amateur telescopes also help greatly in findings of outer space although the appearance shows faint objects.
Astronomy was given wings after the introduction of the hooker telescopes. The same telescope helped scientists to realize that we have neighboring galaxies, and that the universe is anything but a constant body. The expansion of the universe was understood better through the Hooker telescope. Another excellent creation is the Hubble space telescope, the Hubble telescope was launched in the year 1990 into the low earth orbit.
The first telescope was found in the year 1606 and it helped us see the rings of Saturn and the milky way as well.
Earlier telescopes were seen more like magnifying devices that could help see the sky. The first kind of telescope that was invented was the Newtonian telescope also known as the reflector telescope.
There are several uses of a telescope, we know a lot about space, thanks to the invention of a telescope. An optical telescope is capable of focusing light on distant objects, which the human eye can never see. An optical telescope takes into use refracting and reflecting using mirrors which it has.
The impact of telescopes on the world is huge, they have opened our eyes to a big and ever-expanding universe, teaching us more about the galaxies.
