about the book - book about light

Light, Dark, and the electromagnetic spectrum – Since the dawn of time, electromagnetic energy has permeated through the universe and emptiness of space, surrounding and interacting with everything it touches, illuminating, destroying, and giving life. The colourful section of the electromagnetic spectrum we see in the form of visible light, rainbows and other phenomena is tiny when compared to its vast entirety.
