If you find yourself in Livermore, California, you can visit the world’s oldest light bulb, which is still burning bright after 110 years.
The hand-blown bulb is recognized by Guinness World Records as the longest burning light bulb.
Scientists aren’t sure how or why the bulb, which is located in a fire station in Livermore, has been glowing for this long. Installed in 1901, the light is putting new “long-lasting” bulbs everywhere to shame.
A “BulbCam” captures the bulb every 10 seconds, you can watch it here.
