I feel like a terrible engineer for not even bothering to look this up when I first heard the term. Maybe because I had seen the dub since I was an infant as my fest godzilla film I thought nothing of it when I heard it clearly in the original version. Maybe I was still in hs or undergrad when the tape came. Regardless that's awesome.
I wonder if Universal urged toho to move away from the mist of the b&w films and in selecting a color for a ray to dazzle audiences looked that up, or if toho decided on blue for that reason prior to it being made.

In answering Jeff Sloan's Cosmic Query, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice discuss Cherenkov radiation, sonic booms and light booms, and why a diamond sparkles. Find out how we can conduct faster-than-light experiments if it's impossible to travel faster than the speed of light in this "Behind the Scenes."

No joke, I thought the same thing. I was just coming in here to post this. So you're not alone, bro.
I'm not a hero. I'm not a savior. Forget what you know.

I'm just a man whose circumstances went beyond his control.
