Discover the hidden side of light!

Is colour a property of matter? How do we perceive colour? Why is the sky blue? Why are sunsets red? How fireworks get their colors and what does this have to do with the stars? What are the limits of human vision? Do humans emit radiation? Can we see it? There is more to light than meets the eye: How would the stars and galaxies look if we could see X-rays or gamma rays?

Watch our staff scientists demonstrate science in action!

Immerse yourself in the wonders of light and vision. Explore the properties of the electromagnetic spectrum, from radio and microwaves, visible light and colour, to infrared and ultraviolet light and learn how we perceive the world around us.
