Yes, that’s a black and white photo.

The Hubble Space Telescope only takes photos in black and white. To make those beautiful space photos you’ve probably seen, scientists add the color later using a technique first developed around the turn of the 20th century that imitates how our eyes naturally perceive color.

If you want to explore more Hubble photos, a lot of information came from this site: https://hubblesite.org/

And be sure to check out Kimberly Arcand and Travis Rector's book, "Coloring the Universe:" https://www.press.uchicago.edu/ucp/books/book/distributed/C/bo22276742.html

Vox is pure cancer but this video wasn’t.

I think I missed something. If making a black and white photo into a color photo is as easy as applying filters and a specific color, why are people spending hundreds of hours hand coloring historic photos?

this video was good despite Vox being such a cesspool

Now this video is one of the reasons I subbed to this channel.

I am an astrophotographer and this video is SPOT-ON. This is exactly how Hubble (and I) use a mono camera and filters to image the cosmos in color.

Yeah this is quality content 👍

But green is gotten from blue and yellow

Scientists colorize photos of space by deceiving as usual.
Daniel W. Sonntag
Thank you! I actually really wondered how they got color images of the outer space events. Nicely done

This is very good to have. We really need this level of explanation, not just to science pursuers and people passionate about knowledge, but for amateur astronomers and photographers as well, for really grasping the understanding about capturing light from deep space. The Universe gave us its "formula" and now we must do the best we can to reach out for it, for everything that is.

space dust!

green is not primary, yellow is.

All my life was a lie😢

As a sandwich artist I can say this video is spot on, well done.

Am I the only one that thinks that the thumbnail looks like a cat?
Eytro
the concept of space being not as colorful just made me lowkey sad
NCT VELVET
I recently watched a video about colors and it is said that the real primary colors are magenta, yellow, and cyan
Nicole Romero
Actual primary colors: yellow, magenta, cyan

Technically me as a astrophotographer know that you don’t need to “add” color as you can take them with color to begin with. Some cameras do need this process but not all.

Why the Tour de France is so brutal How scientists colorize photos of space 2 days ago   07:10

It's all about the climbs.

The Tour de France is the most prominent cycling race in the world. It’s now in its 109th edition and it’s being called the ‘Highest in History’ because there are more climbs than ever before. This is important because the climbs are where the race is won and lost. The best riders rely on their teammates to get them through the long, flat, and hilly stages, before they take on the mountain stages on their own. These are the hardest and most brutal stages of the race - but they are exactly what makes the Tour de France famous.
