5 of 5 Pretty Plume June 19, 2017
Reviewer: walter clark from Fullerton, CA United States  
It's very pretty even if it shows little to talk about.
But if you buy two of them so that some of the strings point at each other, you can talk about the fact that those that point away is because infinity acts like a distant ground. That is in contrast to magnetic field lines which must have both ends of a field line attached to something ferrous.
