A Bit of Multi-Spectral Awesomeness For Your Delectation
This image has been around for a bit, but I just stumbled on it — so here you go:
I want my own quilt made to that design.
As the linked material says, the point isn’t just pretty pictures. It’s that the characteristics of the light (electromagnetic radiation) detected up and down the spectrum reveal very specific details of the processes the produced each particular emission. See, e.g., the wonderful story of the element that was, then wasn’t, coronium.
One more thing: this image, or rather the investment required to make all the images that go into this collage, is an example of the kind of nice thing it will be harder and harder to get the longer our current Republican party remains in existence. Just sayin…astronomy, Cool Images, Science
