PHILADELPHIA 1752, Benjamin Franklin a well known scientist experimented with a 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 outside. In a windy day, Franklin flew a kite on a wet twine, connected to a medal key. The friction in the clouds was enough to send energy down the wet twin and create a spark that jumped from that heavens. Luckily Franklin was not exposed to lightning or rain. otherwise he would have lost his life.
