Whither the backsid of a cleare glas reflect light in vacuo Since there is refraction in vacuo as in the aire it follows that the same subtile matter in the aire & in vacuo causeth refraction Try Whither Glasse hath the same refraction in Mr Boyles Receiver, the aire being drawn out, which it hath in the open aire.
