Shock Fossils at Windycon?

Well, I still haven't heard whether, or when, Windycon might schedule it this weekend, but Todd Johnson is prepared to give a demonstration of zapping Lichtenberg figures in acrylic, or, in his elegant coinage, "shock fossils."

(Note to self: ask Todd whether "shock fossils" is one word or two.)

Todd has a big slab cooled to dry-ice temperature, and presumably most of the electrons we pumped in at the Ohio accelerator last Friday are still very anxious to get out.

If you haven't seen it, a short video of a previous demonstration is here.

If you're attending Windycon, keep alert for announcements. Or ask a General Technics person. You don't want to miss the flash.
