Color Temperature


Message:

Color temp is measured by how high one would need to heat a hypothetical "black body" solid in degrees Kelvin to radiate light of a particular wavelength.

Lord Kelvin gives us the temperature scale with Absolute Zero (as he correctly calculated it), coined the term "kinetic energy," helping formulate the Laws of Thermodynamics, and so, so much more...

Huh. Now I'm wondering if Lord Kalvan was originally Calvin to do double duty as a fantasy transcription pun, and an homage to a great scientist.

Also amused that Red's fantasy geek tendencies overrode his engineering background.

Yours,
