Scientists use laser beams to control rainfall
Scientists use laser beams to control rainfall

By Trevor Mogg | Digital Trends
  • In a discovery that may have weather forecasters the world over eyeing the job vacancy websites, scientists at the University of Geneva in Switzerland claim to have found a way to control the weather using laser beams.

    According to the results of a study published in the Nature Communications journal this week, the researchers have found a way of using laser beams to make water droplets in the air through a method called laser-assisted water condensation. This is a safer method than current rain-inducing techniques, which fill the air with tiny particles of dry ice and silver iodide.

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”.J Robert Oppenheimer.
