British media: China's research and development of meteorological control system uses satellite

Globe Times reported November 7 in Mirror, UK. The original topic is: China will use satellite to "move clouds" to make it rain in different places.

Chinese scientists have come up with a somewhat fantastic plan for climate change: using satellites to change rain clouds. This is an ambitious project that will allow air vapor to flow from the country's relatively humid areas to more arid areas. It is reported that China will use 6 satellites to create an atmospheric passage in which to move clouds in it.

The project was named "Tianhe project". The Shanghai Aerospace Technology Research Institute, which is launching the project, plans to complete the first double star launch of Tianhe No.1 in 2020 and launch an application demonstration. It plans to complete the construction of six star network in 2022, and will achieve the capacity of one hour satellite surveillance and re visit in Sanjiang source area, so as to provide the "air corridor" for the construction of "one belt and one road" water vapor transmission. Technical support.

The Tianhe-1 satellite will detect water vapor in the air and "transport it" to the north of Sanjiangyuan in Qinghai Province. The satellite model of the Tianhe Project is on display for the first time at the Zhuhai Air Show, which is showing the development achievements of the superpower in the field of aerospace. Scientists are convinced that they can make the Tianhe play a great role. (author Dave Burke, Wang Huicong Translated)

According to an article published by the British Express on November 7, the original topic is: China's huge "Tianhe" weather control project will be "ready in 2022".

Engineers behind China's "Tianhe project" are designing a network of 6 satellites. It is reported that once completed, the system will divert the cloud water to the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, where it seldom rains, and benefit the often arid northern region. At that time, sensors carried by satellites will monitor water vapor moving to arid areas, while ground-mounted devices will release silver ions that can form clouds around them into the air. Scientists responsible for the project say they have found the "water vapor transport channel" over China. If the system works as planned, it will bring rain equivalent to 7% of China's annual water consumption.

The Tianhe Project is not the first time China has used meteorological control technology. This latest project is only part of China's wider use of its cloud water resources. In 2016, Beijing allocated US$30 million for the "cloud seeding" project, which increased rainfall by 60 billion cubic meters per year by 2020. (Harvey Gavin, Wang Huicong)
