ABSTRACT
The article offers factual information related to day-to-day science. "Limelight" lamps were first tested in March 5, 1830. Limelight was created by heating the mineral lime until it glowed. Radioactivity is a type of energy created when the nucleus of an atom naturally decays. The first liquid-fuel rocket flight took place in March 16, 1926. Wabash, Indiana, became the first town to switch from gas to electric lighting in March 31,1880. It is informed that rockets convert chemical energy into mechanical energy.
