During lecture, Professor Lavelle mentioned black body radiation. What does that mean in terms of photons and light?

Well a black body is an object that "absorbs all radiation falling on it, at all wavelengths," and you can calculate the emissions with Planck's Law but I don't think we're really doing many of those calculations. I hope that kinda helped haha
