This is pretty damn awesome. What's happening is that Lichtenberg Figures form from an electron beam and then get shot into an acrylic prism resulting in an incredible trail that looks like a lightning bolt has been forever incased inside a plastic box. Having that large block of acrylic would be the coolest desk accessory ever.

More info on the exact science behind what is happening can be found in the video description.
