The place that holds the world record for lightning strikes per year: up to 1.6 million

In the town of Ologá, on Lake Maracaibo (Zulia state, west of Venezuela), it is almost impossible to observe the night in its dark splendor.Between April and November, lightning bolts appear and disappear constantly in the sky, a phenomenon which has become customary for residents and a "miracle" for the eyes of visitors.LOOK: Senamhi on thunder and lightning in Lima: "They usually come up with a return period of 50 years"An average of 297 electrical storms occur per year, from which this natural light show emerges.This record was made by the US space agency NASA and by the universities of Maryland and Alabama (both in the US) and that of Sao Paulo (Brazil), which confirmed that the Lake Maracaibo is the "capital" of lightning on Earth.A year 297 electrical storms occur over Lake Maracaibo...

We Finally Have The First-Ever Evidence of Cosmic Superaccelerators in Our Galaxy

A cosmic gamma ray detected zipping across the Milky Way has broken the record for the most energetic we've found yet, clocking in at a whopping 957 trillion electronvolts (teraelectronvolts, or TeV).  This not only more than doubles the previous record, it brings us close to the range of petaelectronvolts (that's a quadrillion electronvolts) - finally confirming the existence of cosmic superaccelerators that can boost photons to these energies in the Milky Way.Such a superaccelerator is called a PeVatron, and finding them could help us figure out what is producing the high-energy gamma rays streaking across the galaxy."This pioneering work opens a new window for the exploration of the extreme Universe," said physicist Jing Huang of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in China. "The observati...
