Hang on tight as we take you Inside a Lightning Bolt!
Every year over three billion lightning bolts strike the earth, it’s one of the most beautiful sites you’ll ever see, but also unpredictable and lethal, killing thousands of people each year. But what do we actually know about lightning.
In this documentary Lisa Burke is zapped by more than half a million volts, we find out what happens when people are struck by lightning, get up close and personal with a lightning storm, and experiment with the explosive potential of a direct hit.
Lightning is all around us, the clouds above the Earth constantly throb with the power of electrical storms releasing superheated bolts down to the planet below. And it never stops. Globally lightning hits the ground at least 100 times a second. But what’s its source and how is lightning formed? To find the answer you have to find your own lightning bolt.
Lightning is a sudden electrostatic discharge during an electric storm between electrically charged regions of a cloud (called intra-cloud lightning or IC), between that cloud and another cloud (CC lightning), or between a cloud and the ground (CG lightning).
