Activity 5: Comparison of Images
  • Open all four images side by side to compare them.
  • They will open in the manner in which you last modified them.
  • If you wish you could manipulate the images so that they are all in the same scale or color.

Activity 5 Questions:
  1. Discuss why scientists would want to study SNR images in different energy levels. Use information you have gathered to help support your response.
  2. Describe some possible reasons why scientists would miss seeing a feature in a SNR image.
  3. In conclusion, if you detected any new objects in the SNR image what do you predict that they might be? Why do you think this?
