Caption

This image of an electrical discharge was made by placing a block of Lucite in the 6 megavolt (6Mv) electron beam of a linear accelerator. The Lucite gained a tremendous electrical charge when a grounded electrode was placed near it. The current flowing to ground melted the Lucite, leaving a record of the current flow. This fern-like fractal structure is quite common in electricity.
