Ligtning Strikes

    There is mounting physical and theoretical evidence as well as acceptance in peer reviewed journals that there are things that can be done to mitigate the chances of direct lightning attachment. The fact that tall objects are sometimes struck on the side rather than the top and field experiments that showed a preference for blunt over sharp rods all demonstrate that there is more to this phenomenon than merely the highest point always being struck! However it is true that point discharge based devices that claim to bleed off the induced image charge do not work.
