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 16, 2011, but officially, the observations will be published in December. In their study, the scientist explains the principle of resonance, in accordance with which the message is more energy at the right time increases the properties of a particular phenomenon. Thus, for the strong resonance waves trapped in the lower atmosphere, low-frequency waves needed 6.8 Hertz. When a wave moves around the earth at some point, it reaches the point itself so perfectly that the peaks and trough connected. Thus, the resonance effect increases the original signal.
Using the new data, along with ground-based measurements will allow a better understanding of the nature of lightning, thunderstorms, the lower atmosphere.
