+ - Scientist in Saudi Arabia Make Rain 1

Submitted by zentechno
zentechno (800941) writes "Scientists in Saudi Arabia were able to produce negatively charged ions to attract, and send dust particles into the upper-atmosphere causing water suspended in the air to condense and fall back to earth. They did this 52 times, always when rain wasn't predicted (which it rarely is), so coincidence seems unlikely. It's been known for a long time that one of the reasons deserts are, well, deserts is not just the lack of rain, but more-so that the air carrying the water simply doesn't precipitate in those regions, carrying the water to areas where condensation happens naturally. This could mean an end to man drought areas, though note that the ionizers have to be placed in strategic locations to get the water to precipitate near where it's needed."
