The first person to see a cell was Robert Hooke, a British scientist.  In 1665, Hooke used a simple microscope to observe dead cork cells.  After his discovery, many centuries passed before scientists learned that cells contain organelles such as mitochondria.  Each organelle plays a specific role in helping the cell function.
