WILLIAM HERSCHEL was a German-born Astronomer who was credited with the founding of Uranus's two moons, Titania and Oberon, where he was awarded a Copley Medal and a fellowship at the Royal Society of London. On top of that, Herschel was also interested in optics and began to build his own telescope which had immense magnifying powers, far more than telescopes of his day. He also coined the term "asteroid" and discovered other distant celestial bodies such as two of Saturn's moons, Mimas and Enceladas. Herschel's name still lives on as one of the best and most innovative pioneers of modern Astronomy that shaped our understanding of the universe. His name continues to be honoured among scientists, astronomers and the general public.
