View the Universe in different wavelengths - StumbleUpon

Chromoscope lets you explore our Galaxy (the Milky Way) and the distant Universe in a range of wavelengths from gamma-rays to the longest radio waves. Change the wavelength using the slider in the top right of the screen and explore space using your mouse. For more information we have a quick video tour or you can read more on our blog. If you get stuck, click "Help" in the bottom left. Chromoscope is kindly funded by the Cardiff University Astronomy and Astronomy Instrumentation Groups. Physics Flash Animations. We have been increasingly using Flash animations for illustrating Physics content.

This page provides access to those animations which may be of general interest. The animations will appear in a separate window. The animations are sorted by category, and the file size of each animation is included in the listing. Also included is the minimum version of the Flash player that is required; the player is available free from The categories are: In addition, I have prepared a small tutorial in using Flash to do Physics animations. Build an Atom. Mechanical Gravity Simulator. Awesome Gravity Simulator. Scale of Universe - Interactive Scale of the Universe Tool.
