a light bulb filament has to be in a vacuum ( the glass sphere when you buy it) for it to run for very long without catching on fire and disintegrating.

Thats right as the temperature the filament reaches is so intense that it can burn.

The Newtons and friends were taking tea
Beneath the boughs of an apple tree,
When a falling fruit landed on the
Head of the head of the family.
Mrs. Newton cried, 'Well deary me!
That could've caused an injury'.
But clever Isaac alone could see,
The situation's true gravity.
