X-Ray Camera Captures Lightning Strike

   An article on National Geographic and an accompanying photo (seen to the left) details the first image of an artificially induced lightning strike which shows x-rays at the head of the lightning bolt. The 1,500 lb custom-built camera takes ten million images at 30 pixels every second. National Geographic link.

   The article was originally published on December 23, 2010 and the image was taken at Camp Blanding, Florida.
