In this activity, students explore images taken with telescopes sensitive to several different wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum. Students compare the images to determine that light carries information about physical features in the universe. Students also determine that, because light of different wavelengths comes from different physical sources, combining multiwavelength views helps astronomers develop a more complete picture of the universe and the objects in it. This activity is one of several in the "Cosmic Questions Educator's Guide," a guide developed to support the Cosmic Questions exhibit. The activities in the guide can be used either in conjunction with or independently of the exhibit.
