Thomas Edison is an inventor of major technology. Threw his years he had studied many books by his parents and been reading many books on chemistry and electricity. The more he grew up he started to pursue his education on chemistry and electronics for many years. The more he tried to invent things he had help making of the light bulb with a group of scientists. Thomas Edison is the one who made the light bulb become possible by pursuing more education. Thomas Edison was born in Ohio Milan, on February 11, 1847.

So he had to face the fact he had to invent something that can handle so much energy without that much copper and that was suitable for small houses to use the light bulb.
