About the show: "Expanded View"

Expanded View explores some of the most beautiful deep space objects through the eyes of the Hubble, Spitzer and Chandra Space Telescopes. Each observing platform views the universe through a different part of the electromagnetic spectrum; Hubble in visible light, Spitzer in infrared and Chandra in X-ray. Expanded View focuses on how scientists use these telescopes to enhance our scientific understanding, including turning the images at each of these wavelengths into sound through the ‘sonification’ project.
