When I was a kid, I always thought when I put two mirrors in front of eachother there would be something scary at the other side of the tunnel. Something evil, waiting to get me...

Yes, this guy is great. He can make anything interesting.

But there was one part I didn't understand. If sky get blue because the short blue waves are scattered and the long waves passes. And we then see the blue scattered light. Why would it get red when all other colors was scattered as well except red. Wouldn't it becomes anything but red instead?

Or is it because red is the only color that makes it to your eyes? But then it would not explain the blue anymore.

Tecnically you should not define colors for nondiffuse objects. Otherwise you have big problems. If you count specular reflection as having a color, then every glossy black surface is also white (like a piano or a Mercedes).

Good video, except the beginning, that was way overdone.

yes, and take it a step further, "color" is created in the mind, the color on the electromagnetic spectrum is just a frequency. Our mind tags these frequencies coming into our eyes and we make or associate color to it.

In other words, color is just an interpretation of the human brain, nothing more.

Here is another thought on color: We both see the same color "green" and agree it is it green but is your mind creating the same shade of green I see?

Also an interesting read: "Impossible" Colors: See Hues That Can't Exist

No. The exact translation should be "blank" not "black".
