Title: Radio Astronomy
Url: https://whyfiles.org/shorties/008radio_astro/index.html
Creator: Tenenbaum, David
Publisher: Why Files
Description: This article is a Why Files short piece on how astronomers use information from radio astronomy. Contrary to popular belief, large radio telescopes are not looking for signs of life outside our solar system, but are making images of black holes, centers of galaxies, and gamma ray bursts. These phenomena cannot be seen in visible light, but emit radio waves which can be translated into images. The article discusses how this process works, and the information gathered from radio waves.
