The video above combines two of my favorite things, NASA & Jeremy Clarkson from Top Gear. NASA burns up nearly half a million gallons of fuel to power these solid rocket boosters that provide thrust to send astronauts into space, but first, they need to be tested. So in the wetlands of Mississippi, they fire these engines off and out comes a rain cloud!
Yes, you are seeing correctly, we can make RAIN FALL FROM THE SKY! And while it may not be the most energy efficient process, I’m still amazed.
