Information: The Davy lamp, invented by Sir Humphry Davy in 1815, was a revolutionary safety lamp designed to prevent explosions in coal mines caused by flammable gases like methane. It featured a flame enclosed within a wire mesh cage, which allowed the light to escape while preventing the ignition of surrounding gases. This innovation greatly improved the safety of miners by providing a reliable and controlled source of illumination without the risk of causing underground explosions.
