'Wilhelm Herschel first arrived in Britain in 1757 as an itinerant musician aged nineteen. Fascinated by astronomy, on March 13th 1781 he discovered a planet that was originally named after himself but which we now know today as Uranus.

King George III appointed him Royal Astronomer and Herschel was able to build what was then the world's largest telescope in Slough. He went on to record many more astronomical firsts including the discovery of binary stars. He was knighted for his work in 1816 and died in 1822.
