NPR’s Radiolab featured Dr. Martin Uman on a Dec. 20 episode, “Big Little Questions.” In the quirky and personal segment, a caller describes a “sphere of light floating indoors” during an intense thunderstorm while at a family event. Dr. Uman identifies the strange phenomenon as ball lightning and goes on to describe it as a “well documented mystery.”
The ball lightning segment is first up in the episode, and Dr. Uman appears at 5:40. One of the links below should work for your device:
This recognition comes after Dr. Uman and triggered lightning were featured in a commercial for the new BMW plug-in hybrid.
