An LED light operating 24hrs a day has lifespan > 5yrs. The same light operating 8hrs a day has lifespan of 17yrs. 

 

Efficiency for LED lights is 80% (20% lost as heat), while traditional incandescent bulbs have 20% efficiency. Net: LED lights are 75% cheaper to run.

... "The flight test program is also going to make every upcoming launch a fascinating experience far removed from tightly controlled, extremely conservative commercial space launches.  After separation, and with the payload hopefully safely on its way to orbit,  literally nobody knows what is going to happen next,  and how much of the mystery surrounding the most critical aspect of powered return will be peeled back on any given flight.   In so many aspects, this promises to take us back to  the early years of space flight testing, making it perhaps the summer’s most exciting reality drama."
