Around 300 years ago, a man named Stephen Gray created a machine.The machine was made of a wooden frame with two swings made of silk rope, and wooden planks. What it did was, when someone lay down across the swings and turned another machine, an energy generator, if gold leaf, or feathers were placed under them, and they reached their hand out, the gold leaf, or the feathers would fly around. It would look something like this…

I wonder how Stephen Gray thought of this idea. I also wonder how he made the energy generator machine. I now understand more about insulators and conductors and how they were discovered.
