The human eye can detect millions of colors, yet there are many features in the universe that we cannot physically see. In the April edition of Science in the News, we will address a range of biological and manmade detectors used to capture these hidden features, from invisible light to the tiniest particles. If you have ever wondered why some of us are colorblind, how a tiny camera in your phone captures a high-quality image, or how scientists identify previously unknown forms of matter, join us in uncovering the invisible, the fast, and the unimaginably small with The Detector Detectives!
