-EDITORIAL PICK of Waterless World Competition


Fake news, Real science/

In June 2019, a video claiming that NASA has developed a rain generating cloud machine went viral online. Although such machine has not yet come to life, the concept of cloud seeding is not entirely non-sense but based on a very simple scientific process. 

Guess what happens when the engines burn liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen? You get H2O! Ultimately, the engine exhaust produce “clouds” as a by product and when the water vapor condenses, it actually form drops large enough to fall as what it appears as “rain”. That being said, cloudseeding may be the future of freshwater shortage!
