Multi-wavelength Universe Activity

The aim of this activity is to match images of an astronomical object, observed in different wavelengths, with the object's visible image. Try lots of objects and see how well you do! For a clearer view, try it in fullscreen mode. There are also downloadable resources which accompany this activity.

Classroom resources

The main part is an activity where students match up images objects at different wavelengths. A powerpoint presentation is included. The activity is suited to GCSE and A-level, but can be used at "science clubs" with students of those and younger ages.

Code

The code requires Javascript so you just need a modern web browser to use it.

Note that the Chrome browser has extra security when running locally. This stops the activity getting the configuration file. You will need to start Chrome with the option "--allow-file-access-from-files". On a Mac you can open a terminal and run:

open /Applications/Google\ Chrome.app --args --allow-file-access-from-files
