For the first time scientists have been able to create a cloud indoors and outdoors using a high-powered according to a study by the University of Geneva

.

Co-Author of the study, Scientist Jérôme Kasparian says the laser was used to squeeze water from the air in both settings.

BACKGROUND ON THESE TYPES OF STUDIES

Atmospheric scientists have been try to build artificial clouds since the 1940’s according to Science News. It says previous experiments believed water droplets needed a surface to condense on like a mirror in the bathroom during a shower. But says the study at the University of Geneva is based on the idea that when a cosmic ray strikes a sealed container filled with water vapor it leaves water droplets.

SCIENCE BEHIND THE STORY:

Why does the Cosmic Ray Work?

According to observations by scientist Charles Wilson, cosmic rays knock electrons off the water molecule leaving behind charged particles that act like specks of dust for water to congeal around says Science News.

For the first time in 20 Years the US Will Start Producing Plutonium 238 Again

NASA is running out of the fuel to support its deep space exploration, according to a study by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences.
The United States stopped producing the fuel Plutonium 238 over twenty years ago. And America bought its last batch of plutonium 283 from Russia.
But Russia stopped producing the nuclear weaponry by-product after the cold war.
And therefore, the US Department of Energy has announced it will restart its production of plutonium 238.
Ralph McNutt of the National Academy says plutonium 238 is not as threatening to foreign policy as it sounds
