Can we make clouds in our living room? Not the hazy smoke rings which collect all around us in a claustrophobic room, but real thing carrying actual water.

Jeremy Clarkson, host of the car talk show ‘Top Gear’, witnessed this strange phenomenon in the wetlands of Mississippi. It was at NASA’s rocket propulsion testing center. NASA was doing what it does best, sending up rockets, but as a byproduct it was also sending up clouds. In this video you’ll see a real soft, white, fluffy cloud emerge from the grassy plain and float towards the blue sky, and you’ll be left wondering, what the hell!

 


 

Only thing, this cloud making mechanism drinks up 5,00,000 gallons of fuel and needs a whopping 125,000 acres of land. (On the test day, trucks were driven to far corners into the woods till the drivers declared the noise of the machine as acceptable and that was at a radius of a whopping 125,000 acres. People living within this radius were evacuated as the noise would be deafening.)

And now the good part, the fuel guzzling machine also produces exhaust fumes that are the cleanest in the world. The cloud of fumes dispersed from the machine are actually just a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen. If you paid little attention in school, you would know that mixture is famously known as water. So after half a million gallons of fuel is exhausted, a few thousand gallons of water is produced.

But there could be a simpler way to make clouds which doesn’t need acres of land and gallons of fuel. It could be done right in your living room and all you need is a coke bottle, some alcohol, a cork and a cycle pump. And you’re set to be a rainmaker. Like this guy –
