What to be afraid of when thunder rumbles?

Thunder and lightning have indeed been worshiped and perceived as a punishment from heaven since ancient times. But later, scientists found out that this is just a spark discharge of the electrostatic charge of a cumulus cloud, which is characterized by large currents (up to 3 billion J). It moves down from the cloud at a speed of 160-1600 km / s and at a speed of 140,000 km / s, which is equal to half the speed of light, back from the earth to the clouds along an ionized air channel with a plasma temperature of up to 30,000 degrees (5 times higher than than on the Sun), with a channel diameter of 1.27 cm, surrounded by a 3-6-meter corona, from 90 m to 32 km long. A tree, for example, splits when struck by lightning and can even catch fire. This is due to an internal explosion due to the instantaneous evaporation of the internal moisture of the wood. For a person, a direct lightning strike usually ends in death from cardiac arrest.

Every year about 3,000 people die from lightning in the world, in Russia, according to some estimates, 550 people die. But at the same time, lightning, we read on, gave life to mankind and is the engine of evolution. In 1953, biochemists Stanley Miller and Harold Urey proved that one of the building blocks of life - amino acids - could be obtained by passing an electric discharge through water, in which the gases of the Earth's primitive atmosphere were dissolved. Thus, the scientific theory of the origin of life assigns a fundamental role to the lightning strike. By the way, lightning cuts through the atmosphere not only of the Earth, but also of Venus, Jupiter, Saturn. At the end of January 2006, the Cassini interplanetary station observed a powerful thunderstorm on Saturn and photographed it.
