To infrared and beyond
Goodbye from Herschel

A very big THANK YOU to everyone who helped out with our To Infrared and Beyond - with Herschel exhibit. Thanks to The Royal Society for hosting an absolutely fantastic exhibition and a massive Thank You to all the members of the public, schools, children, dignitaries who visited our exhibit. Watch out for Herschel in the news and keep following us !

The Chromoscope part of the Herschel exhibit was great but if we do the exhibition again we may have to remove the chandelier  that was confusing our poor little wii-mote all week :-)

Final Day at the Exhibition

Last day at The Royal Society Exhibition. Still very busy. Also had the London 10K run to negotiate en route to the exhibition. Lots of interest in the interactive game to find the red galaxies with some pretty high scores.

Here’s a confusing thing …… Taking a picture with a normal camera of the picture that our infrared camera sees.

All the exhibitors were replaced by Penguins to entertain the dignitaries until late at night.
A nice buffet, String Quartet , champagne and …. Penguins.

Photos of the Likely Suspects

On the Herschel exhibit, you can get you photo taken in the infrared by our very own infrared camera, and get a printout to take home with you.

Try the experiments with the bin bag and the pane of glass and see whether the infrared light can penetrate the material or not, you may be surprised.

The world population is roughly divided between ‘COLD’ nosed people and ‘HOT’ nosed people. Find out which category you fall into.

Here is a selection of these….. Let us know if you recognise any of the culprits….?
