A Catalyst article about the life and work of the physicist Robert Hooke. Hooke was a man of many interests. He invented many mechanical devices, including the universal joint used in all cars and designed a balance wheel for a watch. As part of his wide ranging observations, using a microscope, he first coined the term 'cell'. Hooke was involved with The Royal Society from its formation and was involved in the rebuilding of London after the Great Fire. This article chronicles his life in science.
