Communicating multi-wavelength astronomy through exhibit

Author: Bagchi, Manash

Keywords: Astronomy
Communication in science

Issue Date: 2010-01

Publisher: National Council of Science Museums, Kolkata

Description: Popular perception of astronomical observation is imposing on one to believe that universe is studied only through optical telescopes stationed in terrestrial observatories. Yet, a significant part of the astronomy observation is made in wavelengths spanning other parts of the Electromagnetic Spectrum. And the observation points are bound to be out in space for scanning in certain wavelengths. This expanded nature of astronomy observation was presented in an interactive exhibit seeing in different lights in the exhibition messages from the heaven developed by National Science Centre, Delhi. The exhibit design was conceived through our interaction with the students attending astronomy workshops and they were consulted to conceive the user point-of-view of the possible exhibit addressing this topic.

Description: Includes bibliographical references.
