How Thomas Edison Laid the Foundation for the Modern Lab

Caption: Thomas Edison is hands-down one of the greatest inventors in history. This week, the Reactions team went behind the scenes at the Thomas Edison National Historical Park to see how Edison's love of chemistry fueled his world-changing inventions. Recently named a National Historic Chemical Landmark, the complex is home to more than 400,000 artifacts (which we definitely weren't allowed to touch) and is considered the template for modern research-and-development labs everywhere. The video is available at http://youtu.be/mn8uGDg_5fA.
