Summary
For thousands of years, uncovering the nature of light has proved an irresistible challenge. It forms a scientific quest that has endured from the conjectures of the ancient Greeks to the work of twentieth century geniuses like Albert Einstein and Richard Feynman. By combining light's history with the latest research, we can assemble a complete picture of this remarkable phenomenon and its place at the center of creation
