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.
