We're building a pair of 120 foot tall Tesla towers for lightning research.
Our 40ft high 1:3 scale model coil can throw lightning arcs over 60ft.
We'll bring a 9ft Tesla coil to demonstrate various scientific principles and electrical effects.
Greg E. Leyh is the principal engineer for Lightning On Demand, an effort to directly explore the physics of natural lightning with large-scale Tesla towers.
