520    Benjamin Franklin, the 18th-century American statesman and
       scientist, watched the calming effect of a drop of oil on 
       the waves and ripples of a London pond, and began to 
       investigate exactly what was happening to cause this 
       strange phenomenon. Following Franklin's lead, a motley 
       crowd of scientists over the next two centuries and more 
       chose to investigate the nature of atoms and molecules 
       through the interaction of fluid membranes. Building on 
       Franklin's original experiments, their. work has 
       culminated in the discovery of the structure of cell 
       membranes, research that continues to bear fruit to.
