All about lightning and thunder

Through all history, thunder, lightning and lightning strike were natural phenomena which fascinated and frightened man. His efforts to protect himself from efects made by that phenomena were not successfull because of his unuderstanding of phisics. Noticeable progress hapened in 18th century when Benjamin Franklin with his experiments discoverd that lightning strike is actually discharge of static electricity gathered in storm clouds. Today the need that we know more abouth this phenomena has increased, and the modern devices made that possible.


Lightning strike is still a fascinant and not all the way explained phenomena. Protection from lightning stike has various definitions through history, but we still don't know how to completly explain all influences which determine certain lightning strike. But that doesn't mean that we don't know anything about it, on the contrary, there are few less or more complex theories which explain mechanisam of spreading of thunder.
