The Infrared Astronomy Timeline follows the journey
from the discovery of infrared light to the unveiling of the infrared
Along the way, you will learn how infrared technology progressed from simple
detectors to advanced infrared arrays cooled to nearly absolute zero.
You will follow the advances in ground-based infrared astronomy and
learn how telescopes were first placed high above our atmosphere
and eventually into space. Let's discover how we came to see our Universe
in this different light!
