photos of sakurajima, the most active volcano in japan, by (click pic) takehito miyatake (previously featured) and martin rietze. volcanic storms can rival the intensity of massive supercell thunderstorms, but the source of the charge responsible for this phenomenon remains hotly debated.

in the kind of storm clouds that generate conventional lightning, ice particles and soft hail collide, building up positive and negative charges, respectively. they separate into layers, and the charge builds up until the electric field is high enough to trigger lightning.

but the specific mechanism by which particles of differing charges are separated in the ash cloud is still unknown. lightning has been observed between the eruption plume and the volcano right at the start of an eruption, suggesting that there are processes that occur inside the volcano to lead to charge separation.  

volcanic lightning could yield clues about the earth’s geological past, and could answer questions about the beginning of life on our planet. volcanic lightning could have been the essential spark that converted water, hydrogen, ammonia, and methane molecules present on a primeval earth into amino acids, the building blocks of life.

PLEASE REBLOG THIS!!! My friend Ty who has been a good friend since the very first time I talked too him, has been really hard on himself recently and told me he wants to be done with life.. If we can get someone a fluffy chicken, don’t you think we could save someone from attempting suicide again?

I will reblog this 15,000 times on my own if I have to.

You can hate Supernatural all you please, but you can’t say that they don’t have the most accurate younger counterparts of all time.

God bless America…

It’s the resemblance between that pic of JDM and Jensen that always gets me…

Fun fact: this was actually a two story window prior to Morgan Freeman sitting on the windowsill. Once the house realized who he was, it retracted itself into the ground to prevent injury to Morgan Freeman.
