Pioneers of Light and Sound
Light and sound have been studied for a long time. With that knowledge, people have created such important things as telescopes, microscopes, cameras, telephones, radio, television, tape recorders, lasers, compact discs, and MP3 players. For more information on light and sound, read All About Light and Sound, another book in the Mission: Science series.
