NASA Fermi Finds Radio Bursts from Terrestrial Gamma-ray Flashes

Lightning in the clouds is directly linked to events that produce some of the highest-energy light naturally made on Earth: terrestrial gamma-ray flashes (TGFs). An instrument aboard NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope was recently fine-tuned to better catch TGFs, and this allowed scientists to discover that TGFs emit radio waves, too.This video is public domain and can be downloaded at: http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/goto?11131Like our videos?
