Franklin Experiments with lightning

can lightning be brought down to earth lluvia zapata

PHILADELPHIA,1752-Benjamin Franklin,a well known scientist, experimented with a kite , metal key , wet twine, and friction to prove that there is energy in the heavens.Back in his lab,Franklin was able to get a spark from static electricity so he decided to take it out side. On a windy day,Franklin flew a kite on wet twine,connected to a metal key.The friction in the clouds was enough to send energy down the wet twine and create a spark that jumped from the key to his knuckles.This proved that static electricity can be drown from the heavens. Luckily Franklin was not exposed to lightning or rain other wise he would have lost his life.
