An antistatic agent is a substance that is used to remove static electric charges from surfaces. But how does he do it?
Most animals, including us, have electrical noise in their cages, and no one knows where it came from or why it exists. A new study suggests that this is an echo of a distant event — the first lightning on Earth.
Scientists from MIPT together with colleagues from Princeton University simulated the interaction of a high-voltage streamer discharge with a shock wave. Such a wave is formed when the aircraft accelerates to a speed higher than sound!
