William Hershel's Discoverys

Satisfactory Essays
William Hershel made the discovery of a new planet, Uranus. He did this with the help of some technology, a telescope. Those before him claimed it to be a star, but his telescope helped define its features a bit more and led to the discovery that is was in fact a planet. This discovery was completely on accident. His discovery led Hershel to discover moons and create a catalog that we still use to this day. He dedicated the time to observe this “star” and realized that it was actually orbiting around our sun. Hershel’s dedication and curiosity resonates within me in the sense that it can bring about incredible things. An accident ended up being an amazing discovery that brought about our understanding of the seventh planet in our solar system.
