By continuous scientific research the General Electric Company has accelerated this development and has become a leader in the industry. The laws of motion that Newton and Halley proved to govern the movements of a comet are used by scientists in the Research Laboratories of the General Electric Company to determine the orbit of electrons in vacuum tubes.
