Einstein & Light
Everything astronomers know about stars, galaxies, and the universe comes from observing light. Light is a unique phenomenon --nothing else in nature is quite like light. We explore how Einstein discovered the true nature of light, and what astronomers learn from the gravitational lensing, redshifts, and atomic fingerprints of light.
