The Invisible Universe

Michael Rowan-Robinson

Abstract

With our own eyes we can see the night sky of the stars, planets and the Milky Way, the arena of pre-telescopic astronomy. Modern optical telescopes have opened up the universe of galaxies and we are familiar with the superb images of the Hubble Space Telescope. But with the invisible wavelengths of radio, infrared and X-ray, a very different universe comes into view. The astronomy of the invisible wavelengths was inaugurated by William Herschel in 1800 but developed very slowly over the next 160 years. The past fifty years have seen an explosion in our understanding of this strange world.
