Microscopes and the Cell Theory
At lot of times, when we think of a object, we think of it as it is today.
For example, a cell phone.
So when we think of cell phones, we think of the ones we see today.
The ones that we know and many of us use.
But what about the original cell phones?
Just as there are difference between the cell phones we use now and the original cell phones, there are also differences in the microscopes we use today and what the original scientists who first looked at cells had available to them.

The observations and conclusion of many scientists helped to develop the current understanding of the cell.
Matthias Schleiden (1838) – concluded that all plants are made up of cells
Theodor Schwann (1839) – concluded that all animals are made up of cells
Rudolph Virchow (1855) – proposes that all cells come from preexisting cells, completing the cell theory
