Mirrors

Summary

Rajan Datar finds out about the history of mirrors. For the Ancient Egyptians they were seen as receptacles for the soul, for the Aztecs they were used to tell the future, and for the early Christians they were an aid for reaching self-knowledge. Elsewhere, mirrors' key role in the reflection of light led to the development of high-powered telescopes to explore the universe
