X ray, Gamma ray, Infrared space telescopes make viewing the stars more clearly.

The dust and clouds of the milky way and the universe in galactic clusters is so dense that normal light is distorted so enter the X-ray telescope. The X-ray wavelength removes the visible light that distorts stars and galaxies to enable astronomers a clearer picture of the appearance and location of points of light with far more clarity than without this technology. Moreover there is a new telescope with what is called infrared technology, not the same as X-ray but still very useful in seeing stars with more clarity. One space telescope in particular that makes this happen is listed below in a link: http://jwst.nasa.gov/faq.html It's called The James Webb Space Telescope.
