Caption

Robert Wood's 13-inch reflector telescope, with its operating frame and ladder at right. Wood (1868-1955) is best known for his work on optics, including infrared and ultraviolet photography. In 1909, he used mercury to construct the first practical liquid mirrors for telescopes. He also developed a glass for use in ultraviolet lamps, as well as studying ultraviolet fluorescence. His honours include the Rumford Medal of the Royal Society, London, and the Henry Draper Medal of the US National Academy of Sciences.
