9. Redshifts Simplified
Now that you have read the scholarly version of what a redshift is, we can simplify it further in a bit more simple terms. A redshift is a very important concept for all that study, and are interested, in space. This term literally means the length that light is stretched throughout our universe.
So, a redshift of light is simply light shifted towards the red part of the light spectrum. This term also incorporates radiation found throughout our universe and is included in redshift calculators. Redshifts must also be determined in conjunction with the doppler effect.
