Title: Weather Diary 10 June 1752
Concept: Ben Franklin flies a kite.
Detail: As they story goes, Ben Franklin went and flew his kite. And almost got himself killed. Though he (or more likely as assistant - Ben was no dummy) successfully demonstrated that lightning is electricity. He also successfully demonstrated his remarkable luck. By all rights the flyer could have been electrocuted by violating one of the more basic tenants of lightning safety. Very little prevented a lightning bolt from traveling down the wet string to electrify one of our Nation's Founding Fathers. Flying a kite in a thunderstorm is NOT a recommended laboratory exercise for a high school science class. Historians also suggest the experiment, based on Franklin's writings, was actually first conducted in France. And it was widely repeated in Europe, where several researchers were killed or injured trying this dumb idea.
