NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory is getting into the spirit of things with a set of images that combine data from telescopes tuned to different wavelengths of light.
From a distant galaxy to the relatively nearby debris field of an exploded star…
These images demonstrate the myriad ways that information about our universe is communicated to us through light.
In many ways, astronomy uses the science of light.
By building telescopes that can detect light in its many forms, and then by sharing the images with us,
we all can see just how beautiful our universe is.
