The Electromagnetic Spectrum

We humans have evolved the ability to capture light in our eyes and relay the message to our brain

Eyes have existed on Earth for many hundreds of millions of years.

Different forms of light are characterized by different wavelengths. Like sound, light travels in waves, with the length

Differences in wavelength also translate to color, with longer wavelengths shifting towards red and shorter wavelengths shifting towards blue

Radio waves have the longest wavelength, followed by microwave, infrared, visible, ultraviolet, x-rays, and gamma rays. 

The light that our sun emits happens to peak in the visible section of the electromagnetic spectrum

Different wavelengths of light are produced by different processes and events. Low energy events produce longer wavelengths of light while high energy events
