Almost all living and nonliving things emit infrared radiation, or heat. While these long wavelengths fall beyond the visible spectrum, thermal imaging uses temperature to form a picture of objects, even in total darkness. In this activist poster, the bodies of soldiers radiate heat visible in red, orange, yellow, and green tones.
