Time a person would have to work to pay for an hour of light: Babylon, 1750 BCE: 50 hours (sesame oil lamp) 1800: 6 hours (tallow candle) 1880: 15 minutes (kerosene lamp) 1950: 8 seconds (incandescent bulb) Today: 0.5 seconds (LED bulb) A 360,000X reduction in night reading cost!

James T. Kirk & Enterprise were based on James Cook & Endeavour – “to go as far as it was possible to go”.
