Caption: Lightning research. Lightning that has been artifically triggered. A rocket (not seen) has flown into a thunderstorm trailing a piece of fine copper wire. This provided an easy path for the lightning to reach Earth. This research allows scientists to measure the current, voltage and other parameters of the lightning bolts.
