how about predicting strikes? How are we on that?
It's not that hard. If you send up a small rocket that unspools a small wire, the lightning will be happy to use the path to get to ground (although, technically, it's the other way round).The problem is figuring out a way to store the large amount of energy received in a very short time so that it can be converted into useful work.
