In this interactive web game, participants learn about the different types of galaxies (spiral, elliptical and irregular) by viewing them in different wavelength bands (infrared, visible, x-ray). They then learn about active galaxies vs. quiescent galaxies by examining visible light spectra together with the multi-wavelength images. The final challenge is to observe a model of our own galaxy to determine ... Full description.
