This is William Herschel’s prism. In 1800 he passed sunlight through it and noticed that past the red end got hotter than the visible section.
He decided there had to be another kind of radiation which he called “Calorific Rays.” Which we now call infra-red rays. A little piece of awesome history.
Herschel was an absolute screaming genius though, he discovered Uranus,  and some of Saturn’s moons. He proved coral wasn’t a plant showing that it didn’t have cell walls and wrote a buttload of symphonies.
Oh, and he coined the word “asteroid.”

- A man whom I’ve met who lives in a tent in the mountains, talking about how his lifestyle is better than any hotel.  (via breakthequiet)
