... Same theory in terms of perceiving light and focal point(s) but in terms of application, they work differently.

 For smaller sizes like viruses, you need a electron based microscope.

Pretty soon, chips will be so small, you'll have to use NASA's Hubble telescope to see it.

LOL....well I thought of saying that but it would have been to easy! If the hubble can see billions of miles into space, it dang sure can see the smallest chips. All NASA would have to do is turn that puppy around and voila!

It wouldn't work. Its all about focal points. Hubble is designed to look at objects that are very far away. Imagine if you took a camera with a long range lense on it and tried to take a picture of something 2 inches away. It wouldn't be able to focus becaue the object is too close.
