#AtoZchallenge X is for X-shooter

This year it's all about the science!

Well, I might be losing my mind, but I think I'll blame it on blogger. My X post got rewritten as the same W post from yesterday. Took me all day to realize it. So, here's the X post.

X is for X-shooter--
The ESO site is my other favorite place to learn and view all things astronomical. The x-shooter is a contraption added to a telescope to create images with intermediate resolution spectroscopy across a wide wavelength range, from the ultraviolet (UV) to the near-infrared (NIR). It's used to study brown dwarfs, gamma-ray bursts, supernovae, and things dealing with the early Universe. Source

The x-shooter is mentioned around minute 6:15.
