Unravelling the Mysteries of Lightning

Cloud enthusiast, Mark Hyde, recently contacted us about the Atmosphere-Space Interactions Monitor (ASIM) which is a state-of-the-art, unique collection of optical cameras, fast light meters and X- and Gamma-ray detectors, that will for the first time, will allow researchers to observe lightning in the Earth’s atmosphere with unprecedented detail from space.

The monitor will study the inner workings of lightning allowing us to have more understanding of the impact of lightning on the atmosphere.

There is an in-depth and fascinating article about this on the University of Bath website.
