A group of researchers and aviators in Nevada have successfully completed the first flight of an unmanned cloud-seeding aircraft, the state's Desert Research Institute reports.
The flight took place last week at an FAA-approved drone test site in Hawthorne, Nevada, where the DRI has been exploring the possibility of using of unmanned aerial vehicles to address the state's persistent drought and other natural disasters through weather modification.
