Fact of the Day

We can land a spacecraft on the surface of a comet more than 500 million kilometers away.
Yet,  we live in a world where 1.1 billion people – more than one in seven – still do not have access to electric light. Deprived of electric light, people resort to candles, kerosene lamps and fires to counter darkness these primitive light sources claim the lives of 1.5 million people every year through fires and respiratory illnesses.
