The Man Who Failed 10000 Times To Invent The Light Bulb
As the years passed Edison soon turned 12 and started his own little newspaper describing the Civil War and sold snacks on a train. One day when he was walking next to a railroad, there was a boy about to be hit by a train, but Thomas Edison came to the rescue. As a reward for saving the boy’s life, the boy’s father taught him Morse code. At the age of 16 he became a telegrapher. As a telegrapher he kept on getting fired and hired back and forth.
By 1868, he decided that he wanted to be an inventor and invent things the public wanted. Later, he sold some of inventions and made a profit of $40,000. Three years later he spent the money to make his own factory. As the years passed he now invented the electric pen. It was one of his earliest inventions. Then he noticed sparks coming out of something and soon suggested that electricity travel through wires. For example a power line has a wire which makes the energy flow through in the wires. This discovery led to many great inventions. After that he realized he needed a bigger laboratory and so he did get one in New Jersey. The team was doing very good job. For example in the first 2 years he got 32 patents for his inventions. In 1876, Edison worked on improving the telephone by expanding the distances the telephone signals could go. Also he made it very loud and clear so people could hear well. Many people were impressed with his brilliant work. Soon he and his work began to pop up on newspapers as many people were talking about him.
In 1878, he thought of something that could light up and last long. After a year of experimenting he finally discovered the light bulb. He found a way to make it last long and consume less energy. When an electric current goes through filament inside the light bulb, it becomes hot which makes the light bulb to light up. On 1879 Edison invited lots of people for the grand ceremony of the world light up his bulb. The first place to light up was New York and then the world. Soon, he made his invention even better by hiring more people. He failed several times but then after working long days and nights he finally found a solution. He and his partners earned a lot of money because the world was using electricity every day. He was so famous they even had multiple companies and other products named after him. After long years of inventing, he passed away in 1931 as a hero who changed the ways others think.
