In Praise of Science

I owe my life to science.  And my livelihood.

I want to say thank you to scientist and science, of all kinds.  Yes there are bad things that science can be used for, but with out science, I wouldn't be alive.  Much less able to complain about them.

Sprite Streamers: Storms' Hyper-Velocity Ball Lightning?

New high speed video of sprites above thunderstorms!

Massive high speed ball lightning? From the video it looks like the charges descend from above the storm! As ball lightning.

That is incredibly awesome.
