FLAT EARTH REFLECTIONS (Robert Bassano) - PHONE CALL WITH SOFIA TEAM MANAGER! Is this Hubble & Chandra Space Telescopes @ 45,000 FEET?
Dear Robert Bassano (FLAT EARTH REFLECTIONS aka PLANATE VERITAS),
Fact check = You FAIL
You made some major mistakes in your interview..
First off, you should have asked Nicholas Veronico for permission to tape and later rebroadcast the conversation. But you did not.
Because you don't understand what the ES (electromagnetic spectrum) is, when Nicholas Veronico told you that SOFIA can see further into the infra-red than the Hubble Space Telescope can, YOU INCORRECTLY TOOK THAT TO MEAN that SOFIA can see objects farther "distance" away than the HST. THAT'S YOUR FAIL.
What part of the ES you do see does not depend on distance. Rather, it depends upon what spectral range an instrument was designed and built to be able to see (detect).
As a primer - the ES (electromagnetic spectrum) is the entire range of electromagnetic radiation, which includes, in order of increasing frequency and decreasing wavelength, radio waves, microwaves, infrared radiation, visible light, ultraviolet radiation, x-rays, and gamma rays.
The visible spectrum is the small portion of the electromagnetic spectrum that is visible to the human eye. Electromagnetic radiation in this range of wavelengths is called visible light or simply light. A typical human eye will respond to wavelengths from about 390 to 700 nm. In terms of frequency, this corresponds to a band in the vicinity of 430-770 THz.
Convert nm to um - Conversion of Measurement Units
converting between nanometre and micrometre.
Convert (390 to 700 nm) to
390 nm = 0.39
700 nm = 0.70
