What does NASA say about kites online?
- The tow-launch of the hang glider Paresev was a kiting scene with
the wing occupied by live pilot; many of them released from the kiting
and concluded the hang glider flight in free-flight kite gliding where
the pilot's mass and the mass of the pilot holder was the resistive set
that tensioned the hang point to pull the wing.
- NASA has some quotes here and there on other kiting matters.
Lightning research is one of the first sciences developed in America.
Ben Franklin became famous for his experiment in which he flew a kite in
a thunderstorm to test his theory that lightning was the same as the
exciting, new phenomenon called electricity. (Franklin was lucky;
another scientist was electrocuted a few months later repeating the
experiment, so don't try it. Lightning kills.) Source:

The Francis M. Rogallo world in NASA provides a wide garden for "kite"
Gliding parachutes are kite systems; the payload is the resistive set;
the lines to the canopy are the tether set; the canopy wing is the
member of the upper-wing set.
