Light, is the connection between us and the universe.
Through light, we could experience distant stars and look back at the beginning of existence itself.
But, what is light?In a nutshell
Light, is the smallest quantity of energy that can be transported
an elementary particle without a real size
That can't be split, only created or destroyed.
Light also has a wave-particle duality
being kind of a particle and a wave at the same time (although this is a lie)
Also when we say light, we actually mean visible light
which is a tiny part of the electromagnetic spectrum:
energy in form of electromagnetic radiation.
Electromagnetic radiation consist of an enormous range of wavelengths and frequencies.
Gamma rays have the smallest wave lengthsbecause they are the highest energy photons.But most gamma rays are just under ten picometers,
which is still way smaller than a hydrogen atom.For reference, a hydrogen atom compared to a centis about as big as a cent compared to the Mo…
