Groups want radiation markers more visible.
Hardin stated that "X-rays, like radio waves and visible light … do not involve neutrons at all, and are therefore called non-ionizing radiation" ("A Scream," Mailbox, March 31).

When comparing the AMBER continuum visibilities with the NLTE radiative transfer model from Hillier et al.,12 we find very good agreement between the model and observations.

The optical depth would be large in the mid-infrared and the radiation could be scattered in the visible.
