Description:

Visitors can read and view imagery that explains how additional information can be revealed about celestial objects when they are imaged in multiple wavelengths or in wavelengths outside the visible range. Using the example of the Crab Nebula, this description shows that radio, ultraviolet, and X-ray astronomy reveal additional details of its structure and composition when compared with optical astronomy alone. Links to a glossary of terms are embedded in the text.
