1 x 48 HD
Broadcaster:  CNA

In Singapore, lightning capital of the world, daring stormtrackers chase down lightning strikes during the year's most dangerous storms. What is their motivation? And what keeps them going despite the very real risks of danger? 


We ride shotgun with these daredevils, learning what makes lightning so powerful and exhilarating to follow, and all the latest advances in lightning research and control.


Featuring accessible CGI as well as insight from storm experts and rocket scientists, we explore questions like – how do planes survive a lightning strike? Can we control where lightning strikes? And what on earth is upper atmospheric lightning?
