To the fine people at Optics-planet,

           I am interested in taking the position of Chief Optic Scientist at your fine organization. I believe you will find me well equipped to take this position.  You may know me from other Optic Scientists like Galileo who has recommended me.

           To fill this position I believe I would need to prove myself. Well I discovered that the suns light was not the purest form of light. I used physics and a prism to figure out that the rays are made out of the rainbow. Another advancement I pioneered is the telescope. My new telescope in which I placed a mirror in helped us see the planets easily. 

            Thank you for your time and consideration. My resume can be found below.
