The Infrared Astronomical Satellite, placed in orbit in 1983, carried a 22. 5 -inch infrared telescope. Because all matter emits infrared radiation if warm, technologists had to cool the telescope to near absolute zero with liquid helium so its internal heat radiation would not mask radiation it was collecting from deep space objects. Among its many discoverie...
