        Explore the ways scientists use technology to see infrared light, including the ways we sense infrared radiation as heat and use space-based sensors to map conditions and changes on Earth’s surface. This video from NASA introduces and explains the concept of Earth’s radiation budget and the possibilities and consequences of it being out of balance. The video also describes the use of infrared sensing in astronomy.
