In the 10th episode of #AskAbby, please join Astronaut Abby as she answers the question, “How is light formed?” Learn more about properties of electrons, the basics of light formation, and even some quantum mechanics! Electrons may be negative, but we are positive that you find this fascinating and informative!

Includes answers to questions including: What is white light? How do electron shells work? How many electrons are in the element Lawrencium? What is a photon? How are quantum mechanics related to light? What is the law of conservation of energy? How can we see color? How does a light bulb work? And what happens to Abby after she drinks coffee?

But first, a special thank you to our advisor on light formation:

Dr. Raúl Carballo-Rubio
Theoretical Physicist, Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA), Trieste, Italy
