Krypton was discovered by Ramsay and Travers in 1898. Krypton is rare, present in the air in only minute quantities. Separating Krypton from liquid air is difficult; consequently, the high cost of Krypton limits its uses. It is used for filling various fluorescent and incandescent lighting devices. Its name comes from kryptos, which is Greek for hidden.
