The Discovery of the bright Light
Let's go check it out!
What's with that sign? Why is it so bright?
I wonder who is at the door?
Hello! Will you tell us the story of that sign? Why is it so bright?
Why, Hello there!
My great uncles William Ramsey and Morris Travers discovered an unknown chemical back in 1898. The chemical is called neon and that's what the sign is made from.
It is an element on the periodic table and it melts at -415.46 degrees F.
I know that neon weighs 20.1797 u -+ 0.0006u, the symbol is Ne, the column 0 row 2 and the number is 10
Neon is in the noble gas family, it's usually found in the earth crust and comes from the Greek word "neos" meaning new.
Why is neon so important?
As you can see, neon lights up my sign and it gets brighter as it gets dark. Neon makes gases for divers to help them breathe underwater.
