NASA's playing God! It's making its own weather!
- Jeremy Clarkson
Wow. Sometimes (read: more often than you think) the byproducts of science and engineering as, or more, fascinating than the intended project. Case in point: NASA's rocket booster testing in 'nowhere, in the middle of nowhere' Mississippi. The intent was to test some very expensive, very large, very VERY loud boosters. The byproducts - big billowing clouds RAIN clouds!
Seeding clouds for rain? Nah. That's 20th Century maaaaan. NASA is making clouds... on the side... just because!
