I love talking about the electromagnetic spectrum. There is so much more to it than visible light... and electromagnetic radiation is so darned useful.


Light is energy that can take on many forms. Radio waves, microwaves, infrared, visible, ultraviolet, X-ray and gamma radiation are all different forms of light. (Illustration: NASA/CXC/M.Weiss)


Waves influence every aspect of our lives – whether they are part of the electromagnetic spectrum (light, radio, heat), sonic vibration in the form of sound waves, or quiet ripples on the water. Italian artist Loris Cecchini is taking the form of those waves – and making them visible in his sculptural series Wallvave Vibration.


Physics: The electromagnetic spectrum

NGC 2359 (also known as Thor's Helmet) is an emission nebula[3] in the constellation Canis Major. The nebula is approximately 15,000 light-years away and 30 light-years in size. The central star is the Wolf-Rayet star HD 56925, an extremely hot giant thought to be in a brief, pre-supernova stage of evolution


We open our eyes and we think we're seeing the whole world out there. But what has become clear—and really just in the last few centuries—is that when you look at the electro-magnetic spectrum we are seeing less than 1/10 Billionth of the information that's riding on there. So we call that visible light. But everything else passing through our bodies is completely invisible to us.…


violet energy-The difference between violet and purple is that violet appears in the visible light spectrum, or rainbow, whereas purple is simply a mix of red and blue. Violet has the highest vibration in the visible spectrum.


The work of Peter Erskine! In the early 90s on he created solar spectrum art, by using prisms, mirrors, and the color spectrum to create these stunning colored light installations all over the world

♥ M42, The Great Orion Nebula has always seemed the most provocative star in the sky since I was a little girl.
