Expanded View introduces the electromagnetic spectrum and multi-wavelength observation with examples from three great orbiting telescopes: Hubble, Spitzer, and Chandra.
Audiences learn how images are captured and what the colors tell us about composition of deep sky objects. Expanded View is intended to illustrate the importance of multi-wavelength observation by describing how NASAs Great Observatories work together.
Topics include electromagnetic spectrum, how astronomers use light to study the universe, scientific ways of knowing, process of science
