"Studying the universe using only visible light results in a very limited view, as you can see from the two images on the right. Visible light -- the light you see with your eyes -- reveals only part of the universe. Astronomers observe many other types of "light" to expand our views of the universe. SOFIA is designed to observe the infrared universe."
