Description
Here is a spectacular, thought-provoking, and highly informative guide to the fascinating story of light. Superb full-color photography of original equipment, intricate scientific instruments, revealing experiments, and 3-D models offers a unique "eyewitness" view to the incredible discoveries that have transformed our world. See why ancient peoples worshipped the Sun as a god, how light rays bend, why things glow when they are very hot, what creates a color television picture, how microscopes and telescopes were invented, and why a leaf looks green. Learn how fiber optics can transmit light, what happens during an eclipse, why images are reversed in mirrors, how a liquid crystal display works, and what makes a hologram. Discover what causes the eerie "Will o' the wisp", how some animals can make their own light, what creates a mirage, why we burn in strong sunlight, what a polarizing filter does, why we see rainbows, what a quantum is, how X-rays penetrate our bodies, and much, much more!
