Infrared Energy

How does NASA "see" thermal radiation? This video, adapted from NASA, explores what infrared energy is and how NASA detects it to study our Earth's systems more completely. The video also includes a look at the experiment Sir William Herschel conducted that led to the discovery of infrared.

This media asset was adapted from "Earth Science Week 2010 - Infrared Energy" NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.
