Who Invented the Microscope?

Answer

Although there were many versions of the microscope in the 16th century, a scientist called Zaccharias Janssen and his son Han were the first to experiment with two lenses in a tube. This was in 1527, and their original ideas were later refined by Robert Hooke. These developments caused great excitement throughout Europe and led to a large number of discoveries.
