Today in History - The Light Bulb

.

On this day, October 21, 1879, Thomas Edison invented a workable electric light at his laboratory in Menlo Park, New Jersey. Using a filament of carbonized thread, Thomas Edison tested the 1st electric light bulb, which lasted 13½ hours before burning out. Now we are phasing the filament light bulb out.
