    *Source: http://www.iit.edu/~johnsonp/smart00/lesson1.htmThe simplest explanation for the Northern Lights is that, just as the gas in a Neon light glows when charged with electricity, so the gas in the atmosphere glows with specific colors when charged with electric particles from the sun. *Source: http://www.state.gov/r/pa/ei/bgn/3421.htm Norway's emergence as a major oil and gas producer in the mid-1970s transformed the economy. Large sums of investment capital poured into the offshore oil sector, leading to greater increases in Norwegian production costs and wages than in the rest of Western Europe up to the time of the global recovery of the mid-1980s. The influx of oil revenue also permitted Norway to expand an already extensive social welfare system. Norway has established a state petroleum fund that exceeded $388 billion by the end of December 2007. The fund is primarily designed to help finance government programs once oil and gas resources become depleted.
