Quotes

...sunlight hits Earth's surface, it bounces back up toward space and the wavelengths within that light change depending on what's in the atmosphere. "By very carefully measuring certain points in the spectrum of the light bouncing off the surface of the Earth, the satellite can infer how much CO 2  is in the air" Michalak explained
Proposing another theory, he said the light could be coming from dark matter that holds galaxies together, but has never been seen directly. "You know it's a crisis when you start seriously talking about decaying dark matter!" he added
"In our local universe there is more ionized hydrogen than in the past, that's true in all models," Kollmeier said. "But it looks like there is even more than we expected when we accounted for all of the light sources we know about."
