Is it possible for lightning to...

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to direct lightning to something? Maybe bombarding an area with a line of opposite charged electrons then maybe lightning (or high voltage e-) can be directed to something. In other words, using e- as a projectile or a weapon or something... you get the idea.

Yes, it can be done and is done quite a bit to study lightning.  I do not know about weaponizing it though....

Lightning Rocket

There are some youtube videos that show these rockets and the lightning they 'capture'.

It may interest you to know that one lightning bolt directs about 107 Joules of energy.

This is the same as about 10 kg of high explosive (HE)

Why would you try to weaponise something you can't depend on when you have something far more powerful, that you can?

Im just wondering how, since the most powerful projectile there is, is available for free whenever there is a storm and yet we cant use it against our enemies (the ussr perhaps lol)
