This post really “struck” my interest. I am such a science nerd. Lol. Here is an interesting post about lightning from Sparkonit. Check out his awesome blog! 🙂

Lightning is one of the most incredible natural phenomenons and there’s a lot we don’t know about it. Now, a study at Kyoto University, Japan has found that lightning strikes can set off photonuclear reactions in the atmosphere, and the gamma rays – emitted in lightning – react with the air to produce radioisotopes and even positrons (or, anti-electrons) – the antimatter partner of electrons.
