Faraday Cages: They Work!

I’m in the middle of writing another post, but had to blog this first. It’s just too cool to pass up. Ever wondered what it’s like to be in a car that’s hit by lightning? It happened to Judy Lew, who sent her story and photos to UW meteorologist Cliff Mass. Cliff posted it on his blog, mostly as Lew wrote it. It’s a testament to how effective a car’s chassis is at shielding its contents from electrical current. It’s also a testament to the extent to which modern cars depend on electronics.
