The Discovery Channel’s Daily Planet followed the APOGEE team as they installed the APOGEE camera on the SDSS telescope and first used the system to detect light from stars in the Milky Way. The very first spectroscopic images clearly reveal the different elements that make up these stars and start telling the story of how generations of stars in our galaxy created the elements that make our Solar System and life itself possible.
