Light is one of the most fundamental forces in the universe and proved to be one of the most difficult riddles to unravel. The program begins by describing the field of optics and how scientists came to understand such principles as refraction, reflection, and the behavior of light as it passes through lenses. James Clerk Maxwell’s theory of electromagnetism is reviewed along with the importance of the speed of light. The program concludes by showing how these theoretical insights have led to developments in electricity and telecommunications that have transformed our lives.
