Lightbulb

Thomas Edison

He was an inventor born February 11, 1847 in Milan, Ohio. His mom taught him at home because the teacher at school said that he was very distracted and difficult to teach. He later began to teach himself by reading a wide range of books and experimenting. The first place he did experiments was a train car, one day he started a chemical fire and the conductor came and hit him in the head.

The Lightbulb

Thomas Edison and his crew of researchers designed more than 3,000 light bulbs between 1878 and 1880. The success of his light bulb has very much affected our lives today. Every single day rely majorly on electrical lights. The original price of the first light bulb was 1$, that translates to 23$ today.
