Below you will find a vast amount of information regarding the topic of Light and Color. The information comes from many sources other than ST ScI.

Some of the resources are quite in depth, and it is easy to get lost. It is suggested that you bookmark this page before you examine each source. That way, should you get lost, you can simply use the bookmark to get you back to the main page.

Since the various sites are run by other parties, there is no way of guaranteeing their stability. You may occasionally find a site "under construction," or you may find that a site is completely gone. There is no way to control such situations as the sites are out of Space Telescope Science Institute's control.

This page is only a fraction of the information available throughout the web. If you do not find what you are looking for here, GO FIND IT!!
