|DEVELOPMENT OF TELESCOPES
Looking at the components of the Universe
require different types of telescopes because of Universe seems to always
change. The Universe is highly three dimensional in both time and
space, and that creates a different world then most of us are familiar
with. There are two waves to classify telescope. The type of electromagnetic
waves used and how those electromagnetic waves move.
The types of electromagnetic wave telescopes
include gamma rays to radio waves as shown on the electromagnetic wave
spectrum on the right. The photos below show the same area of the Milky
Way using the different types of waves. Each of the photographs reflect
different "clues" which scientists have to predict what they mean.
