The South China Morning Post has recently reported recent technological initiatives. The China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation intends to build large weather altering machines in Tibet. The intention of this project is to generate more rainwater in the area that can be collected. This is not innovative technology, however it will be the largest project of its kind. There are currently 500 units already deployed in Tibet and Xinjiang, the size of the area for this project will be 1.6 million square kilometers (620,000 square miles) once completed. There is a lot of criticism towards the project about how it might not generate rainfall in the designated area. China has already launched the “Tianhe” (Sky River) project despite negative opinions, and the results are sure to be intriguing.
