This review was aimed to find out real life application of noble gas xenon. The noble gas xenon (Xe) occupy the zero group of the periodic table. It is fifth member of noble gas family. It is a colorless, dense, odorless noble gas found in the Earth's atmosphere in trace amounts. Xenon has so many application in real life, viz., in arc lamps in xenon HID (high-intensity discharge) lamp and in high pressure arc lamps to produce ultraviolet light. It is used in instruments for radiation detection, e.g., neutron and X-ray counters and bubble chambers. Xenon is used in medicine as a general anesthetic and in medical imaging. Modern ion thrusters for space travel use inert gases – especially xenon – for propellant, so there is no risk of the explosions associated with chemical propulsion. Xenon is also applied in high-energy physics for detecting nuclear radiation in bubble chambers. Furthermore, neuroscientists are experimenting with the use of xenon in diagnostic procedures to clarify x-ray images of the human brain.

Keywords: Xenon, Real life application, Arc lamp, High-intensity discharge Arc lamp, Application of xenon in anesthetics, High energy physics.
