Capturing a lighting bolt in a glass box forever
Lighting can be rather fascinating and if you ever witness something got struck by lighting in real life you know that nature can also be really badass. And how awesome would it be if you could capture lightning not just on photo but also within a sculpture?
Lichtenberg Figures can capture a lighting bolt in a glass box foreverWell you could do this by creating so-called Lichtenberg Figures. These figures can be created within solid insulating materials, such as acrylic or glass, and injecting them with a beam of high speed electrons from a linear electron beam accelerator.
And as you can see it’s like you’re trapping a lightning bolt in a glass box forever. The awesome result is that you now have a force of nature on display.
