Kalvod, seriously! :D
It's called lightsaber, not darksaber. Black lightsaber = wrong wrong wrong. Black is not a color, it is the absense of light.

Did i say dark saber? Oops :) RETCON! hehe

Suzina said...

Hehehe, I think Fabian means to say that a lightsaber wouldn't be a "light" saber if it was black. So that's +1 for me!

Btw, Sorry I was so ranty this episode!

Kalvod Ku'arad said...

Oh okay, gotcha.

Fabian said...

Yeah, that's what I was saying. Not that real life physics have that much relevance to science fiction, but a black lightsaber makes no sense if you believe that a the blade is a form of high energy light beam focused by a crystal. Black is not a color, physically speaking, it's not part of any spectrum and doesn't have a wavelength. We perceive the absence of light as black.
And what is commonly called black light (or UV light) is, of course, "electromagnetic radiation that is almost exclusively in the soft near ultraviolet range, and emits very little visible light." (wikipedia) Wouldn't really work well for a lightsaber either, I think -- though if you wear fluorescent robes, that could make for cool visuals in a dark setting ;)
