Multiwavelength Universe

A Multi-Wavelength View of Radio Galaxy Hercules A

Our eyes can see some amazing things in the night sky, but visible light is just a sliver of the light we can detect throughout the universe. In this presentation, which draws on the scientifically rigorous 3D Digital Universe Atlas, educator Brian Levine and astrophysicist Emily Rice explore how astronomers use the entire light spectrum, from radio waves through gamma rays, to study astrophysical phenomena both familiar and exotic.

Support for Hayden Planetarium Programs is provided by the Schaffner Family.
