The process ionizes air which then becomes almost as conductive as metal. This sudden and massive release of energy is like an explosion generating temperatures reaching up to 20,000 degrees C which is 4 times hotter than the surface of the sun. This enormous energy can melt or vaporize metal and other components blasting them with explosively hot gasses into the immediate region, destroying the electrical...
