The Case of the Invisibility Cloak with Andrea Alu

June 17, 2016

We want to hear what you think about the episode! Tell us what you would do if you were invisible, or which method we described that is your favorite. Drawings or stories are a huge bonus! Email us here. 

 

Can't get enough invisibility science? We don't blame you! That's why we're sharing some of our favorite videos and links that will help you become invisible - just kidding.

 

Reactions is a youtube series from the American Chemical Society that uncovers the chemistry in everyday life. Last year, they did a special episode about Invisibility in honor of 2015 the "International Year of Light". (Did you know that was a thing?! Really? We didn't.) Anyways, it's a great video! They explore the science behind light, sight, and invisibility with some pretty cool animations.
