Members of the EQB Club will have the pleasure of a Zoom lead by John Bordley, at noon, Wednesday, March 3, titled “Why is a Red Apple Red?” Bordley will present some basic science about color, what is the visible spectrum, how the eye interprets visible light and translate it as “color,” and exploring why we see the sky as blue and an apple as red. Bordley brings a unique perspective that combines knowledge of science and the arts with a dry sense of humor. Please join us for this opportunity to “boldly go explore where no one has gone before” (Star Trek) as we join Bordley in this intriguing question. Non-EQB members interested in attending this Zoom lead should contact Chuck Morgret by email at <email@example.com> for the Zoom link.
