Cosmic Odyssey-Extreme Astronomy

Today on Discovery Enterprise we are going to explore the extreme edge of the spectral frontier where, strange things go bang! in the night. High-energy radiation, the alarm signal of atoms in extreme distress, can only be detected in space through the advanced technology of X-ray telescopes and gamma-ray satellites. In Extreme Astronomy, rare but spectacular catastrophes caused by high-energy radiation — such as supernovas, stars in collision, and planets falling into black holes — are glimpsed through these instruments, teaching us more about our universe.
