Much of the cosmos cannot be seen through optical telescopes. But it can be detected in wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum ranging from gamma-rays, through x-rays and ultra-violet to infra-red and radio. They reveal cauldrons of starbirth, exploding stars, neutron stars and black holes. Most exciting are Gamma-ray Bursters - cosmic flashes as bright as a million trillion Suns. In this program, we learn more about visible light (7 colors and gradations) and infra-red light (outside the scope of human visibility) along with extraordinary images of atmospheric and galactic events.
