Capturing the light of the Universe
Light is the key piece of the Astrophysics we make today. Thanks to the analysis of the light astronomers know where stars, galaxies are, what they are made of, how they move, and more. I will give some examples of how light is captured and analysed in big telescopes such as the Anglo-Australian Telescope (AAT) of the Australian Astronomical Observatory (AAO), from imaging to spectroscopy, summarising some of its most important scientific results. But I will also talk about how amateur astronomers and citizen scientists are now capturing the light of the Universe, as they are getting astonishing views of the night sky. Deep sky images of both professional and amateur astronomers are inspiring artists and young people in science and technology around the world.
