Caption: Lightning test. A television antenna wire explodes as it is struck by simulated lightning. This test studies the effect of lightning on the wire itself, and whether a dangerous electrical current could pass from the wire into any other components - such as a television to which the wire might be connected. Photographed at Uppsala, Sweden.
