Presented by Dr Karl Kruszelnicki and Professor Geraint Lewis.

Finish National Science Week with a bang as Dr Karl and Astrophysicist Prof Geraint Lewis take you places you’ve never been.

What is the colour of an electron? Why is gold a golden colour? How do electrons relate to Pirates of the Caribbean and carrots, and the colour of dinosaurs? And how does the world look to the crazy eyes of the mantis shrimp?

Come on an electrifying journey that will join the astonishing (and often tenuous) dots between light, electrons and the workings of our colourful universe.

Showtime runs 45 minutes, with another 45 minutes for Q&A.

But wait… what is an electron again?
