The Statue of Liberty’s True Colors

The Statue of Liberty is made of copper, which is supposed to be the color of a penny. Well, she was when she was new, but we are used to seeing her as a weird green color. This video from the American Chemical Society explains how she turned green. If we were to remove the green, would there be anything left underneath? Maybe not, so green she stays.
