What is a lightning rod

Lightning rod, better known as a lightning rod, is a device that serves to protect the house from damage to lightning. The lightning rod can light the lightning from the roof to the ground, eliminating its negative effects. This is an invention attributed to two men - Prokop Diviš and Benjamin Franklin. Both scientists conducted lightning experiments at about the same time so that whoever was the first designer of the lightning rod still have speculation. The first lightning rod in the Czech lands was installed in 1775.
