Doppler effect on light

  1. If a star races toward earth the emitted light will be blue shifted. If the violet light produced from the star has a wavelength of 400 nm and it is blue shifted to 1 mn, does this light now exist as x-rays (on earth)?

    Yes, the light received at Earth will fall in the X-Ray band.
