The Electromagnetic Spectrum

The Electromagnetic Spectrum

Electromagnetism and the electromagnetic spectrum is the focus of this resource, created in part by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Authors Gibb, Lochner and Newman describe each space telescope that NASA has launched as well as its observing range in the electromagnetic spectrum. The site features additional information on: radio observatories, microwave observatories, infrared observatories, visible spectrum observatories, ultraviolet observatories, extreme Ultraviolet observatories, x-ray observatories, and gamma-ray observatories. This is a fairly broad overlook of topics involving physics and astronomy.
