Part 2 of 3: Roy Masters and Steve Grow talk about the speed of light traveling through optical fiber, how it slows down as it goes through the fiber and then speeds up again at the other end.

Our hosts also discuss lightning, and how the Earth's magnetic center affects this natural phenomenon. Also – find out about the main differences between tornadoes and hurricanes.
