Lightning never strikes twice (ongoing)

“The story of lightning is the story of man's endless quest for understanding the world about him. Originally regarded with terror, lightning was a mystery to the first men who sought to understand it. The sequence of man's attempt to explain the mystery of thunder and lightning started with magic and then passed into primitive religion and superstition. Today the story is one of science. But the search for understanding has been long and circuitous. Even today there is considerable conflict of theory and a surprising lack of information about lightning.”
