Description
Light travels faster than anything we know of. Some materials allow light to pass through them; others don't. When light is blocked in this way, a shadow is formed. This book looks at the science of light-what it is, how it enables us to see, and what it does as it passes through a lens. Find out how the special light produced by lasers can vaporize metal and cut through diamonds. Book jacket.
