Visible light is a mixture of many different colors. These colors include
red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet. You can see light split
into these different colors if you look at a rainbow or at sunlight
passing through a prism. Light moves very, very fast. All kinds of light
move at the same speed in empty space.
