100 Year Old General Electric Light Bulb Retrieved From Time Capsule, Still Works Perfectly

General Electric company was formed on March 25, in the year of 1912. This company celebrated their 100th anniversary this year on 25 March. But this celebration was a little bit different from other celebration. The company revealed 100 year old 5 piece of 40 watt tungsten filament light bulbs and astonishingly 1 bulb successfully glowed up.


Employees at General Electric’s NELA Park in East Cleveland, Ohio, opened a 100 year old capsule in the afternoon. This capsule was hidden for 100 years inside a cornerstone of a NELA building. After opening the capsule, 5 light bulbs were discovered. As the lights were 100 years old, so lots of dusts were upon them. After a good dusting off, out of those 5 piece 100 years old 40 watt tungsten filament light bulbs, 3 bulbs appeared to be in working condition. They were plugged into a regular 120 volt socket one by one. Suddenly, it surprised all. One of the bulbs successfully glowed.

Check out the amazing video below.

Nela Park employees plan to bury a new time capsule in April 2013 containing General Electric’s Energy Smart 60 watt LED bulb. Hope so, their purpose become successful.
