Our Colorful Universe: Translating Cosmic Light
Joseph DePasquale of the Space Telescope Science Institute

Vivid and fantastical images of the cosmos can amaze and astound both scientists and the public alike. Have you ever wondered how the data from the Hubble Space Telescope and other observatories are transformed into these celestial works of art? How is light beyond the visible spectrum presented and combined to create multi-wavelength masterpieces? And does the strange term “false color” mean that the images are not real? Join us for an engaging discussion exploring how these colorful cosmic images are created, and delve into the broader context of the history of our understanding of light.

Host: Dr. Frank Summers of the Space Telescope Science Institute

Recorded live on Tuesday, July 2, 2019, at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A.
