He decided to prove that static and lightning were the same by designing a Leyden jar–like electric circuit to let electricity flow from clouds just as it did into a jar. Franklin’s “circuit” was made of a thin metal wire fixed to a kite (to gather electricity from the clouds) and tied to a twine kite string. Electricity would flow down the twine to a large iron key tied to the bottom. Franklin tied the other end of the key to a nonconducting silk ribbon that he would hold. Thus, electricity would be trapped in the key, just as it was in a Leyden jar.
