Luminescence sheds light on the adventure of science. A 17th-century alchemist tried to turn a stone into gold. He failed, but the stone glowed in the dark instead. Scientists and several other folks have explored the science and wonder of cold light--the chemistry of animals and things that make light but not heat. The alchemist began to mold the very first luminescent objects.

These scientists and several other men and women have explored the science and wonder of cold light--the chemistry of animals and items that make light but not heat. Using easy-to-grasp applications of biochemistry, genetics, and electronics, today's scientists create amazing inventions and applications, from mice that glow to the burgeoning technologies of LEDs. Awe-inspiring, full-color photographs accompany the compelling, fact-filled text in these scientific explorations. With light humor, Anita Sitarski brings the thrill of discovery to life as she recounts the stories of the alchemist, Boyle, the adventurers who very first saw nightmarish creatures glowing in the depths with the sea, and others.
