Tropical storms produce Gamma-Ray Radiation Bursts (TGF), the highest energy light naturally found on Earth

About a thousand times a day, thunderstorms fire off fleeting bursts of some of the highest-energy light naturally found on Earth, called terrestrial gamma-ray flashes (TGFs).

These TGFs last less than a millisecond and produce gamma rays with tens of millions of times the energy of visible light.

NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has recorded more than 4,000 TGFs since its launch in 2008. Now, for the first time, a team of NASA scientists has analyzed dozens of TGFs launched by the largest and strongest weather systems on the planet: tropical storms, hurricanes and typhoons.

Their new paper is entitled: Terrestrial gamma ray flashes due to particle acceleration in tropical storm systems and was published March 16 in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres.

Is that the energy NASA and other large official institutions are using to control the weather in the sky?
