Museum of Science, pictures

As promised, a couple of pictures from my Museum of Science (Boston) visit.

(1) The van de Graff generator with D. and me in a cage as it is struck by "lightning". You can see Franklin's kite in the lower-left part of the picture:

(2) One of the weather radar exhibits, explained by J.


  1. didn't we get an explanation of this is Balu Sir's class about two giant spheres holding enough charge etc. etc.

    wow! to see it for real...


  2. yeah, but never sank in how big the charged spheres needed to be.
