LITTLE BOY:: “WHY IS THE SKY BLUE?”
DAD:: “It has to do with molecules in the air scattering blue light more than red, diffusing blue photons from the Sun so they appear to come from all over the sky, and not just from the Sun. Plus, the Sun doesn’t emit nearly as many purple photons as blue ones, and our eyes aren’t very sensitive to purple light, so overall the sky winds up looking blue.”
Little Boy: “ All this time I thought it was because of quantum effects involving Rayleigh scattering combined with a lack of violet photon receptors in our retinae.’”
MORAL OF STORY:: I’m not really sure but I hope you have a great day. I’ll be gone for a few days. Wife and I are going to do a little camping/fishing..
