How far is a star or a galaxy? Scaling and measuring the cosmos is a complex problem. Scientists are integrating mathematical applications and scientific technology to create standards. Distances are so vast they are described in light years - the distance light travels in a year. Nearby stars are measured by trigonometry - the technique of parallax.

Much of the cosmos cannot be seen through optical telescopes. But it can be detected in wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum ranging from gamma-rays, through x-rays and ultra-violet to infra-red and radio. They reveal cauldrons of star birth, exploding stars, neutron stars and black holes. Most exciting are Gamma-ray Bursters - cosmic flashes as bright as a million trillion Suns.
