This is why microwaved grapes produce flashes of plasma

Two grape halves heated in a microwave produce light-emitting ionized gas, or plasma. The grapes collect and trap microwaves whose energy eventually bursts outward. The discovery could lead to passive microwave antennas. None One of the internet's favorite mysteries has been what happens to an everyday grape nearly split in halves and put in a microwave: After about five seconds the grape produces a dramatic flash of plasma. Here's what it looks like. Has this mystery been keeping you up at ni...
