Important The first time I was in a public presentation of a neon sign was of two- 38-foot long tubes at the Paris Expo in December 1910.
Special about me • I am the 2nd lightest inert gas after helium • I make a bright reddish orange light in signs. • I can last 15 year without going off. • I am non-toxic to the environment • I have been contained by plastic and other material but glass is the only one that can hold me.
Alone!!! • I have no friends I don’t see a need for them I am perfectly happy on my own.
IMPORTANT • I am inert because I don’t make any compounds. • I am a gas
