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.
