Reactions is all about the chemistry that happens in copper this week. The Statue of Liberty and her green color is filled with science. Did you know she wasn’t always green? When France gifted Lady Liberty to the U.S., she was a 305-foot statue with reddish-brown copper skin. Her color change is thanks to about 30 years’ worth of chemistry in the air of New York City harbor. Get an education on the chemistry of how this monumental statue transitioned from penny red to chocolate brown to glorious liberty green in this Reactions video.

This is a talk about the statue of Liberty. A gift from France in the 19th century. Americans were tasked with paying for the pedestal, but they didn’t want to. It took Joseph Pulitzer to raised the money. Now, the statue is as iconically American as hamburgers and the star spangled banner. Have a listen and learn something.

Lady Liberty, the Statue of Liberty on the Susquehanna River
(DRONE FOOTAGE PROVIDED BY MATTHEW DRESSLER/Special to PennLive)
Lady Liberty, the replica of the Statue of Liberty which has occupied an abandon pier in the Susquehanna River for over three decades. The original statue was set in place on July 1, 1986, by local activist Gene Stilp and friends in recognition of the original, which turned 100 that summer.
She was originally 17.5 feet tall, weighed 450 pounds and was made of venetian blinds and wood.
She was originally supposed to be removed by Labor Day in 1986 but ended up staying until 1992 when a storm did her in.
With more help, fundraising and all the proper permits, Stilp and his buddies built a new Lady Liberty out of metal, plywood and fiberglass. She was 25 feet tall and weighed 4 tons.
She still stands today with the help of volunteers who sometimes clean and repair her.
