A form of electromagnetic radiation with very high frequency and energy
X-rays are very useful because they can be used to see cracks in bones.
it is believed that exposure to the radiation from X-rays can cause cancer.
-Wavelength range: X-rays are electromagnetic waves with wavelengths in the range of 0.01 to 10
Frequency range : frequencies in the range 30 petahertz to 30 exahertz (3×10 16 Hz to
3×10 19 Hz)
-Velocity in a vacuum: their velocity in a vacuum is the same as visible light:
186,000 miles/second or 300,000 kilometers/sec
-There is a X-ray machines at the airport or a baggage scanner, also to be used to look inside the body to
see broken bones and other things inside of you. And to for historians to check if a painting way painted
over the other one.
NASA's Nuclear Spectroscope Telescope Array, or NuSTAR, has imaged a section of the Andromeda galaxy, which is the biggest galaxy near ours. NuSTAR can pick up even the faintest of these objects. The images were taken by NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer in ultraviolet light. NuSTAR is a Small Explorer mission led by the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. NuSTAR's mission center is at UC Berkeley, with additional support coming from Kenya.
