Description
From an Italian alchemist seeking to create gold from some strange stones to modern-day scientists cloning the genes that produce luciferin and luciferase, and the engineers trying to develop cheaper, whiter, more efficient LEDs, the text lays out the historical hows and whys of cold light, its success in the natural world, and its application in medicine and domestic/industrial illumination. Clear color photos and information boxes abound. A nifty list of further reading and a nice selection of Web sites are also provided. For kids who have been intrigued by such titles as Kris Hirschmann's Creatures That Glow (Gale, 2005) or Mary Batten's The Winking, Blinking Sea (Millbrook, 2000), this is a deeper look at a topic that has fascinated every firefly-hunting youngster out in the yard with a jam jar on a warm summer night.
