Are microwaves really just a form of light? What exactly is the electromagnetic spectrum? While our eyes can't see most of this spectrum, except for visible light, we have developed technologies such as giant radio dishes, infrared cameras, x-ray scanners, and ultraviolet satellites to peak into the "invisible" world around us.
"Electromagnetic Spectrum: The Musical" introduces to you the electromagnetic spectrum...listen and don't mind if your feet start tapping into the rhythm as a science-mad A.I. system (voiced by GLaDOS actress Ellen McLain) uses a song to educate a computer technician (Ed Wasser) about the nature and utility of the electromagnetic spectrum. With Casey McKinnon & Mike Romo.
