Our eyes can see some amazing things in the night sky, but visible light is just a sliver of the light we can detect throughout the universe. In this presentation, which draws on the scientifically rigorous 3D Digital Universe Atlas, educator Brian Levine and astrophysicist Emily Rice explore how astronomers use the entire light spectrum, from radio waves through gamma rays, to study astrophysical phenomena both familiar and exotic.
Venue Description: A museum for the 21st century, with a rich and storied past and one of the greatest natural history museums in the world, with over 40 exhibition halls. Open daily from 10am to 5:45pm except on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
