Nanotech May Be At Center Of Hurricane

Abstract:
Weather forecasting, even when it comes to hurricanes, is notoriously inaccurate. Satellites or plane-dropped devices have limited abilities. That's because few data come from inside the storm itself, making it hard to tell what it will do.

Now Ensco, a tech R&D firm in Falls Church, Va., says it has a foolproof way to predict the path of rampaging hurricanes and other severe weather events.

The firm's developing a system that uses helium balloons loaded with molecule-sized sensors.
