Unbeknownst to virtually everyone, a scientist built a device around the middle of last century that could actually make it rain, and now a research internist is hard at work trying to find it.
As reported by McClatchy Papers, while working at the Tacoma (Washington) Historical Society, Nichole Hine came across an old black-and-white photograph of what was described as a rainmaking machine.
While checking the archives of the Tacoma Public Library, Hines, 21, discovered the photo while working on an exhibit about local inventors. The picture depicts the inventor of the device, which is about the size of a suitcase, loading it onto an airplane, but it did not contain much information about where the machine may be today.
What Hine found even more surprising is that the inventor, Robert Sprenger, went to the same institute of higher learning as she, the University of Puget Sound, where she graduates in December.
In the 1940s, Sprenger worked as a chemistry professor at what was then known as the College of Puget Sound. Besides instructing, he worked on inventing things.
“I’d never heard of any sort of invention to come out of UPS,” Hine told McClatchy Papers.
Hard to locate
After making her discovery, Hine searched the university’s online archives, where she began to discover more and more information about the mysterious machine from an article Sprenger penned for a 1948 UPS alumni publication. In the piece, Sprenger delved into the science behind his rainmaking device, and provided details of his testing of the machine in the Prosser area in 1947.
