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.

he Statue of Liberty’s original torch, which has been housed in the base of the statue since a replica replaced it in 1984 (inset), was moved across Liberty Island to its new home in a museum that will open next year. The base and the detached flame of the 3,600-pound torch, as well as a replica of Lady Liberty’s face, were trucked slowly and carefully to the museum construction site about 100 yards from the statue. Officials with the National Park Service and the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation said the torch was removed in 1984 because it was too badly damaged to restore.
