The Herschel Museum has an exhibition throughout 2019 on Invisible Light: William Herschel and Infrared documenting William Herschel’s pioneering discovery of infrared light. We’re delighted to be sponsoring the exhibition and working with the Bath Preservation Trust on heating William Herschel’s home with infrared heating. The exhibition includes Herschel’s handwritten notes from 1800 when he was experimenting with three thermometers, a prism and a piece of white card. Today, his pioneering discovery of infrared is still hugely significant.
