An article about lightning safety brought up a question. Cars have been a safe place in a thunderstorm because of the faraday cage effect of all the metal around you. Aptera is mostly composite which tends to explode or puncture when struck by lightning. On aircraft we have bonding straps on the composite structures to hopefully channel lightning around the composite to the metal structure and out the static wicks. Will the solar cells and associated wiring serve a similar purpose on the Aptera, or do we need to consider some kind of bonding straps incorporated into the structure to channel a potential lightning strike around the passengers. On the flip side, not so sure lightning could work as an alternative rapid charging scheme 🤔.
