Even after all this time the sun never says to the earth, 'You owe me.' Look what happens with a love like that. It lights the whole sky. - Hāfiz
How long must you stare at the heavens before you start asking why the sky is blue during the day but red at sunset? In fact, this is the most common scientific question asked by children, “Why is the sky blue?”. The curious Irishman John Tyndall, a physicist from the 19th century is known for decoding the enigma of the blue sky... well partly. You see in the 1860s Tyndall started experimenting with light by shining beams through various gases and liquids. He soon realized that the varying color of the sky was the result of sunlight scattering around particles in the atmosphere. However, in 1910 Einstein settled the case by looking into the scattering of light by individual molecules. As it turns out blue light is scattered more than red light. So, in the end it seems the answer is not as simple as we had hoped for but maybe we never really needed an answer to begin with. Next time you look out the window, regardless of rain or shine, keep in mind that’s probably not the whole story. In Shanghai it’s always wise to carry an umbrella anyways, don’t believe me? Why don’t you step forward and see for yourself?
