A New Hypothesis of The Creation of Lightning
By, Ronny Rondonuwu.

The process of how lightning is created is very simple this hypothesis hopefully could answer "The Great Mystery" of how the cloud acquires this charge and create lightning.

*The atmosphere around the earth is constantly being hit by various kind of particles rays originating from the emission of the sun and stars in the Universe cause of a.o the thermonuclear reaction in Sun/Stars.
*The particles and rays include alpha, beta, gamma rays, proton, electron photon etc.
*The beta particles (electron) Containing negative electricity will be halted (stoped) and Accumulated on the bottom of the cumulunimbus cloud.
*Beta particles electron emited by the sun and stars cant penetrate the cumulonimbus.Cloud which contain, drops of water vapor and ice crystal (the top of cumulonimbus clouds can reach 12000 meter or higher).
The effect of that is the beta/electron particles accumulation in the lower part of the cloud will turn into a giant capacitor which has the potential of creating (become) lightning.

Some Other Opinion of Ronny Rondonuwu.

*Lightning is a solid substance of electron and lightning as a plasma (In Physic) is "The fourth Estate of mater". Lightning actually is not hot but when the lightning pass through in high Penetrating speed and scratching the air (object or thing) it will cause the object become hot and expanding and in a split of a second will gather again so resulting in a Thundering Sound.

*The space in The Universe isn't Really Empty but we could not find air as in our atmosphere or water like in our Ocean (sea).
But the "Empty" space in our Universe consist of particles, rays (Alpha, Beta, Gamma rays, proton electron etc).from the emission of our Sun and Stars in this Universe.
The "Ocean of energy" in this Universe resemble our air (atmosphere) and our sea/ocean, we should makes the most of it like what we already did with our ocean and sea for water transportation (boat using propeller or jet ski) or air transportation for our air plane, jet or propeller.
The energy for example beta/electron particle that exist in outer space can be used as a medium or source of energy to fly inter planetary or stars.
The use of solar cell is limited as the limitation of the reach of the Sunrays in the inter planetary/stars journeys. What we need to look for is a technology to use the energy or the medium that exist in the "ocean of energy" in the outer space.

What "Great Mystery" ?

It is already known that the multiple ice particles and water droplets are pushed around violently in the cumulonimbus cloud. The friction creates static and the positive static gathers at the top of the cloud and the negative at the bottom. Continuously this process is done all over again and again. Until the static electricity is too great between the two charges, the cloud lets out a giant spark to another charged mass, the ground. In a way the ground also creates its own spark and leaps up to meet with the incoming spark. Otherwise the cloud lets out that giant spark known as lightning to another cumulonimbus cloud.

I wasn't aware it was a "great mystery" since, you know, lightning is very well understood and has been for a while.

Right.

And doesn't the magnetic field block most of those alpha, beta, and gamma rays?

Well it bends most alpha and beta to the poles. Gamma rays strike the atmosphere and burst into a secondary shower of particles.

Overall that was the stupidest thing I have ever read.

(Alpha, Beta, proton, electron etc) Can anyone tell me what's wrong with this?

Hint: Alpha radiation = proton radiation and Beta radiation = electron radiation.

At least he gets beta radiation right later on.

THE GREAT MYSTERY?

"Beyond its powerful beauty, lightning presents science with one of
its greatest local mysteries: How does it work? It is common knowledge
that lightning is generated in electrically charged storm systems, but
the method of cloud charging still remains elusive." (How Lightning Works, by John Zavisa).
http://science.howst...m/lightning.htm

"The Great Mystery"
"In an electrical storm, the storm clouds are charged like giant
capacitors in the sky. The upper portion of the cloud is positive and
the lower portion is negative. How the cloud acquires this charge is
still not agreed upon within the scientific community
, but the
following description provides one plausible explanation." (How Lightning Works, by John Zavisa).
