China is using two massive drones to seed rain clouds in Sichuan province to try to end a devastating drought that has choked power generation and disrupted the supply chains of global giants such as Apple and Tesla. From the report: The China Meteorological Administration launched the drones in the northern and southeastern Sichuan provinces on Thursday morning, and the aircraft will eventually cover an area of ​​6,000 square kilometers during operations that will last until Monday, state-run CCTV said. Seeding works by dropping an ice-maker, such as silver iodide, into a cloud that already contains enough moisture. Raindrops collect around the agent, gaining weight until they begin to fall. China has a long history of using this technology to irrigate crops, cool major cities and ensure clear skies during events such as the Olympics.
