Radiation was the propagation of energy from a source and through space or another medium. For example, infrared radiation was emitted by animal organisms in the form of heat and light invisible to humans.[1] Stars also emitted radiation, which some species that dwelt in the vacuum of space absorbed through their skin as a means of nourishment.[2] Signals transmitted through space could be corrupted by radiation through a process called radiation interference.[3] A coating of chromium could reflect certain harmful radiations.[4] Radiation Cannons, used by B1-series battle droids of the Separatist Droid Army, had the ability to fire radiation.[5]
