Far infrared rays, a part of natural sunlight having the longest wavelength, [...]
So apparently, far infrared is the longest wavelength component of sunlight. Here's what Gizmodo told their readers:
As opposed to regular infrared, far infrared rays are part sunlight and are believed to have the longest known wavelength.

Idiots.... Why can't they just bring all the relevent news together for us busy people to read in a quick and concise manner. I am sure they are just trying to be cute and hip by adding their 2 cents of sarcasm or whatever but it just makes them look retarded. Just watching the credibilty go down the toilet, soon they will be right up their with Fox News ;)............
