Lightning Captured by X-Ray Camera

Thursday, December 30, 2010

X-Ray for detecting the lightning that strikes back to earth on rainy nights with terrific power. Wow this sounds creepy ha. Yeah Scientists from Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne has invented this X-ray machine which can capture these lightnings.

This machine can shoot ten million frames a second and this was targeted at an artificial lightning which was generated by shooting rockets into thunderstorms, with attached wires directing the flow of energy down into their target zone. And this machine captured the Xray of this lightning. The pictures suggest a lightning bolt carries all its x-ray radiation in its tip.

when talking about caputuring the image of a lightning, Joseph Dwyer, a lightning researcher at the Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, say "Something moving this fast would go from the Earth to the moon in less than ten seconds."

Now you may think whats the moto behind doing this experiment????? For many years scientist know that these lightning emit radiation, but until now scientists didn't have the technology to take x-ray images quickly enough to see where the radiation comes from. Hmmmmm now they made a point on this... But lets see what all can be done with this research.
