A collection of resources that I worked on as part of a team at the Space Telescope Science Institute Office of Public Outreach.
Reading the Rainbow Video Series
How do astronomers learn about something in space that is very far away? In addition to images, they study the light from cosmic objects like planets, stars, and galaxies. Astronomers spread light out to look at the detailed rainbow spectrum (plural: spectra). Light carries a lot of information, if you learn to “read” its rainbow!
