In a book that covers a host of fascinating light-related topics such as the hues of alien sunsets to the psychology of colour, Mark Lorch and Andy Miah provide an illuminating insight into how and why we see the universe the way we do.
A Flash of Light was written in just a weekend in a novel experiment at the 2015 Manchester Science Festival, in which Dr Lorch and Professor Miah challenged a group of academics to write a book with the public watching over their
shoulders. Dr Lorch said: “fuelled with caffeine and take-out and inspired by each other’s company, we knocked out a book that we are really very proud of”.
If you have ever wondered about the science of colour and light, and want some simple and fun “try this at home” ideas, this book can be yours for just £12. The book can be purchased here and found as an e-book from online retailers.
