On 5 July 2018 The Guardian reported:
In October 1832 a young naturalist named Charles Darwin watched with delight as hundreds of tiny spiders dangling from short silk threads floated on to HMS Beagle as the ship made for Buenos Aires. But even as he marvelled at their aerial antics, a debate was under way as to how spiders became airborne in the first place. In a new study, scientists at Bristol University weigh in on the issue. They report the first tests of whether electrostatic forces are involved in what aficionados call spider 'ballooning'. After a series of experiments performed with spiders in a Faraday cage, they conclude that the creatures can indeed fly on electric fields.
