Can you see the contents of the suitcase without opening it? The immediate answer is yes - it needs X-rays. However, as ionizing radiation, they have a detrimental effect on living organisms, which limits their use. There is, however, another way to look inside the suitcase. You have to use a special kind of "light".
Normal", that is visible light, is a type of electromagnetic wave. The distinguishing feature of each wave is its length or frequency.

The lens is an important element of the eye of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fish. It allows one to see objects located at different distances clearly. It is possible because images are formed on the retina - another important part of the eye. Clear images are achieved by changes in the shape of the lens.

'Liquid crystals' are advanced materials commonly used in modern technology. They are common in consumer electronic devices where they serve to present information as digits, letters, symbols and images. These so-called displays are used both in the simplest of gadgets as well as in color TVs, monitors, tablets, phones, etc.

Gravitational waves are another tool for space exploration, especially of phenomena related to large-scale objects. It may well be, as Barry Barish suggests in the CERN Courier, that they will help us better understand how the universe began or the Big Bang theory
