When you look at the light spectrum in visible light, you’ll find that the colors are actually pretty similar.
But how does this light affect the environment around us?
In this video, a team of scientists and engineers explores the physics behind the invisible spectrum and explains how this works.
“The invisible light is the light emitted by the universe that we don’t see,” explains Chris Denniston, a professor at MIT and a co-author of the paper.
“It’s a bit like the difference between an orange and a blue light, but you don’t have to look at it to see it.”
In other words, the invisible photons that we see are all part of the same spectrum.
They’re invisible to us, but we can use them to create our own color patterns.
