‘But What Does it Mean?’ Computer-Generated Rainbows Reveal Some Answers [VIDEO]

UC San Diego computer scientists intended to understand how to create rainbows digitally. And along the way, they made some discoveries about the physics of rainbows that occur in nature — including the awe-inspiring double rainbow.

“This goes beyond computer graphics,” said the advising professor. “We now have an almost complete picture of how rainbows form.”

To learn more about their discoveries, watch the video above, and check out the narrated slideshow, below, from the researchers.
