How to use "Leeuwenhoek" in context?

The leeuwenhoek Observatory is a Dutch astronomical observatory owned and operated by the Dutch Royal Academy of Sciences. It is located in the municipality of Voorschoten, about 8 kilometres southwest of the city of Utrecht. It was constructed between 1939 and 1941, primarily using women and children as slave labourers. It became operational in 1942. The telescope operated until the early 21st century, when it was taken out of service for budgetary reasons. In September 2011, the Dutch government announced that the observatory would be restored and reopened in late 2013, with the telescope once again operational.
