I was thinking the headline referred to an invisible color that would require ultra-vision to see. Oh well.....

You can't just call a color ultraviolet. Ultraviolet means something. The word is taken. Imagine all the confused physicists.

Also, it's invisible... Which is sort of a big barrier to being a color... In fact, that is probably the only barrier.

Unless you get your cornea(s) replaced with an artificial implant.

And here I was sure it was going to be "rose gold". It's all any of the fashion blogs talk about.

They're not calling it ultraviolet. They're calling it Ultra Violet. Spaces also mean something.

/Also, one of these eons, physicists will have to come to grips with the fact that they don't have sole control over the way people use words, particularly when not everyone has a post doc

This is like trademark infringement but with colors!

If they really wanted to cause a stir, they should have called it "infraviolet". Or "ultrared".

To be fair, Mila wasn't the star of the film - her midriff was.

And hear I thought they had invented a paint for subtlely marking things in ways that could not be detected by the human eye.  Bummer.
