NASA | Terrestrial Gamma-ray Flashes Create Antimatter

NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has detected beams of antimatter launched by thunderstorms.

Scientists now think that most TGFs produce particle beams and antimatter. This video is public domain and can be downloaded at: http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/goto?10706 Like our videos?
