Far InfraRed and Submillimetre Telescope

Scope note
Originally called "FIRST," for "Far InfraRed and Submillimetre Telescope," the spacecraft was renamed for Britain's Sir William Herschel, who discovered in 1800 that the spectrum extends beyond visible light into the region that we today call "infrared." The Herschel Space Observatory is a space-based telescope that will study the Universe by the light of the far-infrared and submillimeter portions of the spectrum.
