Users can read and view imagery that explains objects in our universe that produce a vast range of radiation with wavelengths either too short or too long for our eyes to see. Materials presented here show that the type of radiation emitted by an object is determind by its temperature. A table showing the types of radiation, temperatures, and types of celestial objects that emit them is included. ... Full description.
