Asked by pnemonoultramicroscopicsillicovolcanoconiosis to Arti, Chris, Dustin, James, Steven on 19 May 2012. This question was also asked by shaunm.
Yes, every colour has been discovered. The range of light we can see with the human eye is a continuum of colour and only over a very limited range of wavelength of light. This part of the electromagnetic spectrum is very well understood and studied. It contains every colour we can see.
Steven has essentially answered this, but I thought I might blow your mind by saying that we have never discovered any colour, because colours are actually not real.
Nice answers by Steven and Dustin. 🙂
Random childhood story: I tried to invent a colour when I was little, then I realised it was really just a combination of two other colours anyway. Ah, the young scientist and artist at work…
I guess we have all probably done that?
Well answered Steven.
