Lightning in a Bottle

Lightning in a Bottle

Another thing-a-ma-jig at the Science Center.   I forget what this is called, but when you touch it the electricity inside the globe “arcs” to where ever you touch it.  Weird sensation … probably more for me than the three year old who is already jaded by electronic stimuli in every facet of his life.

Thought for the Day:  I am among those who think that science has great beauty.  A scientist in his laboratory is not only a technician, he is also a child placed before natural phenomena which impress him like a fairy tale.   Marie Curie (1867 – 1934)
