Following the examples set by Birkeland and Alfven, we are well advised to work our way outwards from Earth in trying to understand astrophysical structures and formulate a realistic cosmology. I was delighted to see reference made on Thunderbolts to the work of Knight and Grab of Wits University on lightning geomorphism in the Drakensberg mountains. It's a superb example of empirical science at work. There is a great deal of research going on at my home university (UKZN, Durban) in plasma physics and related fields, with some fascinating results already obtained. Here is a link to UKZN physics department's research page, to give you an idea of the sort of things they are investigating.
