1. A light source comprising:

  • an elongate thermally conductive member having an outer surface;

    a plurality of solid state light sources carried on said elongate member outer surface at least some of said solid state light sources being disposed in a first plane and others of said solid state light sources being disposed in a second plane not coextensive with said first plane;

    electrical conductors carried by said elongate thermally conductive member and connected to said plurality of solid state light sources to supply electrical power thereto;

    said elongate thermally conductive member being configured to conduct heat away from said solid state light sources to fluid contained by said elongate thermally conductive member; and

    said elongate thermally conductive member comprises one or more heat dissipation protrusions, at least one of said heat dissipation protrusions being carried on said elongate member outer surface.
