AstroMedia Newton Window Prism
A rainbow for indoors! This large crown glass prism projects beautiful spectral colours into your room.
Hang the prism in a south-west or south-east facing window. When the low standing sun shines through the prism, it projects fields of spectral colours sideways into the room. A slight spin of the prism makes them dance around beautifully.
The English mathematician, physicist, and philosopher Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727) was one of the founding fathers of the modern theory of colours. Prisms, like this one, were commonly known as a toy in Newton’s time, but he was the first one to use them for scientific experiments, leading to his famous Theory of Colours.
Includes box, strong hanger, and a description of Newton’s famous prism experiments.
Dimensions: 30 x 30 x 30 x 200 mm
