A laboratory in space has a window so an experiment can be observed from outside. The apparatus has two light sources, red at one end and blue at the other, that can be switched on at the same time.

The experimenter triggers both the blue and the red light sources at the same time, and as a result the white light signals their simultaneous arrival.
