Krypton

A Noble Gas

Kryptons uses and awesome information.

Krypton is used in many things. For example krypton is used in energy saving fluorescent lights. Another way krypton is used is in lasers with fluorine. These lasers pulse with 500 times more power than the entire U.S. power grid. Krypton is non-toxic but I wouldn't advise inhaling it. From the time that krypton was discovered in 1898 until the 1960's most scientist believed that it was impossible to make compounds of krypton, or any other noble gas. Krypton is not very abundant in our atmosphere, but Krypton-85 in the atmosphere can be used to detect the presence of otherwise unknown nuclear weapons research and production facilities.
