chapter ii: tricks of the light


The study of light and vision has always intrigued thinkers and scientists. In England, Isaac Newton experimented with prisms, splitting sunlight into separate colours. Other experiments in optics attempted to explain reflection and refraction. This chapter will have you spellbound by prisms, distorting mirrors and kaleidoscopes.
