The Color Pink Doesn't Exist, According To Science
By | September 30, 2019
Next time you are at a gender reveal party or walking down the Barbie aisle at the toy store or buying Pepto Bismol, ask yourself if you are really seeing all the pink you think you are seeing. Huh? Let’s explain. There is a scientific theory that the color pink does not exist and that it is, in fact, a scientific impossibility. Here’s why.
Color Is Light
The colors that we see are simply different wave lengths of light that reflect off an object. Our eye perceives that wavelength as a color in the spectrum. You may remember from middle school science class that light is comprised of different wavelengths and that the human eye can only see a portion of it. We call that visible light. A spectrum can break that visible light into the various colors of the rainbow—red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. We used the mnemonic memory device, ROYGBIV, to remember these colors and the order in which they appear.
