famous for his experiment about electricity, with a kite in a thunder-storm. He was lucky, that the kite collected only static electricity from the storm cloud, demonstrating safely the presence of electricity. But contrary to legend, he did NOT get his kite struck by lightning. Which was fortunate, as not long aterwards, a German scientist trying the same experiment, died unpleasantly when his kite WAS struck by lightning.
