Dimitrios Giannios, Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Purdue University uses different wavelengths of light from the electromagnetic spectrum to study the universe. Dimitrios takes the time to explain the electromagnetic spectrum, wavelength bands. We learn about how an astrophysicist uses these wave bands to study neutron stars, pulsars, black holes, and other things in the universe. The speed of light and the physical state of plasma were also both discussed.
