China and Russia modify Earth's atmosphere

The two world powers have reportedly been working together on a series of controversial experiments.
According to a Chinese scientist involved in the project, the two countries have been collaborating on a way to modify the atmosphere for military purposes.

One of several trial experiments carried out in June allegedly targeted a region of approximately 49,000 square miles above the Russian town of Vasilsursk in eastern Europe.

Electrons were pumped in to the atmosphere using an atmospheric heating facility in Vasilsursk, while a Chinese electromagnetic surveillance satellite collected data from orbit.

The experiment reportedly achieved a ten-fold spike in negatively charged subatomic particles.

Such alterations have the potential to provide distinct military advantages by disrupting satellite communications and manipulating the weather.

Efforts to control Earth's atmosphere for such purposes date back to the Cold War.

It remains to be seen what China and Russia plan to do next with the technology.

This is just appalling and disgraceful, haven't we screwed with the planet enough? All they're doing now is finding new and interesting ways to kill it quicker. Honestly, it's just despicable. .

But the world's most developed countries were 'modifying' Earth's atmosphere for over 100 years now at increasing scale. Efforts of environmentalists get nullified very soon by the plumes of progress. Just ridiculous.

What could possibly go wrong? (sarcasm) Interesting how they used their own people as unsuspecting guinea pigs. To bad we'll never see the full report. Hank
