About a thousand times a day, thunderstorms fire off fleeting bursts of some of the highest-energy light naturally found on Earth. These events, called terrestrial gamma-ray flashes (TGFs), last less than a millisecond and produce gamma rays with tens of millions of times the energy of visible light. Since its launch in 2008, NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has recorded more than 4,000...

"I have no answers but I do know that the greatest human invention is not fire or the printing press. It’s the scientific method. It has taken us from burning witches at the stake to driving robots on Mars while sending probes to the stars in less than 350 years. We all own the trademark for this invention, and it’s certainly worth standing up for." [ Ow.ly Link ]
