You must be talking to yourself, moron.
What do scientists test AGAINST?
OK! And what did they test that definition AGAINST?
And what do scientists test wavelengths AGAINST?
You are the real moron.
How can you be so ignorant, note;

A scientific hypothesis is the initial building block in the scientific method. Many describe it as an "educated guess," based on prior knowledge and observation. While this is true, the definition can be expanded. A hypothesis also includes an explanation of why the guess may be correct, according to National Science Teachers Association.
A hypothesis is a suggested solution for an unexplained occurrence that does not fit into current accepted scientific theory. The basic idea of a hypothesis is that there is no pre-determined outcome. For a hypothesis to be termed a scientific hypothesis, it has to be something that can be supported or refuted through carefully crafted experimentation or observation. This is called falsifiability and testability, an idea that was advanced in the mid-20th century a British philosopher named Karl Popper, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica.
A key function in this step in the scientific method is deriving predictions from the hypotheses about the results of future experiments, and then performing those experiments to see whether they support the predictions.

As usual I have to provide an education to you and wasted a lot of my time.
That was why I hesitated to respond earlier.
It was bad luck I started.
Suggest you go back to school on your own.
What is that which scientists observe?
What is that which scientists define?
What is that which scientists hypothesise ABOUT?
What is that which scientists perform experiments AGAINST?
What is that which scientists make predictions ABOUT?
What is that which scientists create knowledge ABOUT?
What is THAT you are asking about?
All the questions you raised I have provided answer[s] which you rely on as a base to ask further questions.
Just as I had provided the answers to your continuous questions upon my answers, you could have answered them yourself if you have the necessary depth and width of knowledge and put in some effort to research and read up.
There is still a long way with more questions and answers, but there is no final nor absolute answer.
It is a good trait to keep asking Why, What, When, Where and How like a small child pestering his parent or other elders, teachers, tutors or the more knowledgeable.
But you are not a child anymore and I am not your personal tutor, so you must take the responsibility upon yourself to seek your own answers, after all the questions you raised are not that difficult.
From the responses that wasted a lot of my time, you are lazy, dumb and ignorant.
