Science is everything we can - and cannot - see.
Activate seemingly invisible gases to reveal their color-based signatures using a spectroscopy carousel and the Periodic Table of Spectra. Explore characteristics of natural light with prisms and refractors and discover how scientists use this process to identify unknown elements.
