Many of us likely remember that Star Trek had a lot of cool toys. They had Phasers, Tricorders and Transporters but something else they also brought us were Tractor Beams. In case you are unfamiliar with a Tractor Beam, it was capable of shooting a beam of light at an object and drawing it closer to the ship. It was especially useful when someone was trying to steal the shuttle craft. Today however scientists are looking at building a tractor beam that may be able to control the weather. I’m sure we all understand what profound effects controlling the weather could have on earth and how it would change the dynamics of international relationships in our world. Those that control the weather could unleash it as a force for evil rather than good. One of our favorite authors MJ Banias delves into just what the scientists are doing and where they’re heading and you can find it HERE.
