From the time of the earliest Greek mathematicians and philosophers, the subject of light has been a tantalizing topic for discussion. In this series, the properties of light are explored, and the theories of many of the foremost thinkers throughout history are presented. Its mysterious properties have been examined by Plato, Pythagoras, Bacon, Newton, Kepler, and Faraday. Newton's theory of light as a particle was the accepted view until the 19th century.
