Radio astronomy is a subfield of astronomy that studies celestial objects at radio frequencies. (wikipedia)
- Wikipedia: Radio astronomy is a subfield of astronomy that studies celestial objects at radio frequencies. The first detection of radio waves from an astronomical object was in 1932, when Karl Jansky at Bell Telephone Laboratories observed radiation coming from the Milky Way. Subsequent observations have identified a number of different sources of radio emission. These include stars and galaxies, as well as entirely new classes of objects, such as radio galaxies, quasars, pulsars, and masers. The discovery of the cosmic microwave background radiation, regarded as evidence for the Big Bang theory, was made through radio astronomy. Radio astronomy is conducted using large radio antennas referred to as radio telescopes, that are either used singularly, or with multiple linked telescopes utilizing the techniques of radio interferometry and aperture synthesis.

- Atacama Large Millimeter Array - The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array is an astronomical interferometer of radio telescopes in the Atacama desert of northern Chile.
- Channel 37 - Channel 37 is a purposefully unused television channel in countries using the M and N broadcast television system standards. The frequency region set aside for Radio Astronomy is really from 600 MHz to 620 MHz -- but the area reserved or unused differs from nation to nation and region to region.
- Gamma-ray astronomy - Gamma-ray astronomy is the astronomical observation of gamma rays, the most energetic form of electromagnetic radiation, with photon energies above 100 keV. Radiation below 100 keV is classified as X-rays and is the subject of X-ray astronomy.
- Infrared astronomy - Infrared astronomy is the branch of astronomy and astrophysics that studies astronomical objects visible in infrared radiation. The wavelength of infrared light ranges from 0.75 to 300 micrometers.
- Radar astronomy - Radar astronomy is a technique of observing nearby astronomical objects by reflecting microwaves off target objects and analyzing the reflections. This research has been conducted for six decades.
- X-ray astronomy - X-ray astronomy is an observational branch of astronomy which deals with the study of X-ray observation and detection from astronomical objects.
