What is a periscope?

A periscope is an optical instrument that will help you view an object when it isn’t directly in front of your eyes.

What function does the periscope serve?

The periscope will help you see your surroundings even when you might be behind a wall, under a toolshed or even underwater.

What is a periscope made of?

The periscope is formed of a combination of lenses and mirrors that reflect light through the tube body. Simple periscopes only have two mirrors. Complex periscopes use both mirrors and lenses.

Where are periscopes used?

Periscopes are mostly used in the army for defense purposes. The naval army uses periscopes in their submarines to locate the enemies above the water surface. At sea, periscopes will help you see as far as 12 miles. Similarly, soldiers use periscopes to target hidden enemies. Interestingly, NASA also uses periscopes to find and study structures on the moon like lunar caves.
