Under a Cobalt Sun
“To search for life outside our Solar System, scientists need to discern the spectra of life that might have evolved under parent stars that are very different from our Sun.
Each planet will have different dominant colors for photosynthetic pigments, based on gases in the planet’s atmosphere, and which part of the light spectrum mostly reaches the planet’s surface.”
– Paraphrased from NASA Science Brief “The Color of Life, on Earth and on Extrasolar Planets” by Nancy Y. Kiang, April 2007
“For the Rays, to speak properly, are not coloured. In them there is nothing else than a certain power and disposition to stir up a sensation of this or that Colour.”
