Light Speed Trivia: Week 1

To shine a spotlight our new holiday experience Galaxy Lights, presented by Reliant and our fall exhibit Playing with Light, our November trivia theme is light. Do you know the answer to this week’s Light Speed Trivia?

What is it called when light passes through another medium and bends?

Correct! Wrong!

When light passes through another medium and bends it's called refraction. Light refracts whenever it travels at an angle into a substance with a different refractive index. This change of direction is caused by a change in speed. For example, when light travels from air into water, it slows down, causing it to continue to travel at a different angle or direction.
