Waves from lightning fall into space Scientists prove

At any time, about 2,000 thunderstorms rolled across the earth, giving rise to 50 lightning. When lightning flashes, it produces low-frequency waves, which circulate around the Earth at an altitude of 96 kilometers. This phenomenon is called the Schumann Resonance.

Until recently it was thought that energy is "trapped" between the ground and the ionosphere, without going beyond it. But the electric field vector of instrument Goddard (VEFI) found that some low-frequency waves penetrate from the lower atmosphere into space.

NASA scientist Fernardo Simos first published his research on the Internet November
