Electromagnetic Spectrum - Google Hangout

Wednesday, 22 April, 2015

Electromagnetic Spectrum is a Google Hangout (one in a series with Dr Pamela L. Gay) held on Wednesday, April 22, 18:00 (CET).

Today, we are able to study the universe in many colors that can’t be seen with our eyes. From detecting X-rays, to listening to the radio universe, we are able to use digital detectors to “see” hidden aspects of distant objects. In this Hangout, we will review the electromagnetic spectrum.
