I know this is a touchy subject for a lot of people, but I’m not afraid to speak up. Telescopes are way cooler than microscopes. Why you ask? It’s quite simple really, when you microscope something it always ends up looking gross and spooky. Even dear old chocolate!
A telescope though is always cool, you can see a star! you can see a mountain peak! you can see a galaxy! you can see a neighbour! Amazing!
