Could we dissipate a tornado with a rocket?
« on: 23/02/2016 17:28:49 »
Tornadoes like the devestating one in Oklahama feed on their own energy - wind force.
Can we dissipate or disturb that one-directional force by sending an explosive device e.g. a rocket, by whatever means, into the tornado ?
With today's sophisticated technology such as drones, surely it must be possible without it being flung out before detonation and endangering people's lives (which are in danger anyway)?
