Lightning Bolt X-Rays Imaged
X-rays filmed at an amazing 10,000 frames per second. I think we want to use this at Focus Fusion to capture the plasmoid forming up if it can be done. I suspect X-rays are blasted loose there.
The methodology will at least teach us something about the fine structure of a lightning bolt.
Here we already discover that lightning is emitted at or about the tip of a bolt and not from the trailing plasma path. This is not too surprising when one considers how we produce them in a tube by blasting electrons into a plate.
