uomengsci This picture from the #NationalGrid #HighVoltage #laboratory at the #University of #Manchester shows an impulse generator in action.  It is capable of producing 2.3 million #volts, around ten thousand times greater than mains voltage!  The impulse generator lets #researchers #study how #lightning attaches to and affects different #materials, which is useful for development in lightning #protection for equipment including #aircraft and #WindTurbines.

Well, now that I'm back at work from being sick, I finally got him a rubber frog and hopefully, he'll walk out happy (and surprised) tomorrow! | #Melbourne #UniversityofMelbourne #MelbourneUni #UoM #UniMelb #MelbUni #colleague #frog #treefrog #rubberfrog #Bromeliadtreefrog #Bromeliad #plant #forestatwork #jungleatwork #joke #prank #surprise #happy #happydays #fun 15h
