The Search for Roy G Biv has brought us beyond the rainbow, to white. However, I would be remiss as a science geek if I didn't point out that white light is actually all the colors of the rainbow, combined:
"Visible light, also known as white light,
consists of a collection of component colors. These colors are often
observed as light passes through a triangular prism [or a raindrop]. Upon passage
through the prism, the white light is separated into its component
colors - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, [indigo], and violet. The separation of
visible light into its different colors is known as dispersion. ... each color is
characteristic of a distinct wave frequency; and different frequencies
of light waves will bend varying amounts upon passage through a prism."
( Dispersion of Light by Prisms; The Physics Classroom )
It was Isaac Newton who discovered that white light is composed of these different colors:
"Newton’s contribution created a new understanding that white light is a
mixture of colored light, and that each color is refracted to a
different extent. The different colors correspond to light with
different wavelengths, and are refracted to differing degrees. This
separation of colors is known as dispersion."
