From A Faint Blue Glow
To Modern Miracles
FDISON saw it first a mere shadow of blue light streaking across the
terminals inside an imperfect electric lamp. This "leak" of electric current, an obstacle to lamp perfection, was soon banished by
removing more air from the bulbs.
But the ghostly light, and its mysterious disappearance in a high
vacuum remained unexplained for years.
Then J. J. Thomson established the electron theory on the transmission of electricity in a partial vacuum and the blue light was
In a very high vacuum, however, the light and apparently the currents that caused it disappeared.
One day, however, a scientist in the Research Laboratories of the
General Electric Company proved that a current could be made to pass
through the highest possible vacuum, and could be varied according to
fixed laws. But the phantom light had vanished.

there is hardly a man, woman or child in the country today whose
life has not been benefited, directly or indirectly, by the results of
the scientific investigations that followed.
Thus it is that persistent organized research gives man new tools,
