Dr. Loomis Lytes 
Theory of Refraction
This is a graphic rendering of the Theory of Refraction made famous by noted illumination theorist Loomis Lytes, PhD.  He first delivered this idea of light refraction in a lecture for the International Board of Luminosity in 1955.  Although it was seen as incomplete at the time, as new methods of measuring light waves were discovered other scientists have proven his theory to be true.  Unfortunately he did not live to see his work accepted as fact and died in 1965 at the age of 72.   The  Aurora Borealis  is also  called the "Northern Lytes" after the the famous theorist who proposed its existence.

Dear Helen,
Although Lytes proposed the theory there was no way to prove it in 1955. With the Kennedy space program came the isochomatic telescope, now part of the Hubble space telescope, and his theory was found to be true. Several of his other theories have yet to be verified. One interesting theory on brain waves that could be projected and received with the right frequency of light. You should check it out.

Thanks, Otto... but this is Jay. I look forward to the additions you have made at the Museum. Love the idea that you have a theatre and tea room attached now. Do you still have the demonstration of the bats that can fly through walls?

Sorry but that whole theory is beyond us.....
Carry on,
