Infrared light can penetrate these clouds, letting scientists look into regions of star formation, the centers of galaxies, and newly forming planetary systems. Spitzer took this image (below) of the remnant of a supernova. 39 40 Astrobiologist sensors record the information with infrared images, which are beyond visible wavelengths. Colors are then assigned to the different wavelengths, and these variations in color make the image visible.
