Cloud-Making Machine Forms Clouds In The Sky, Fights Climate Change

Multi-disciplinary artist Karolina Sobecka made a personal weather modification device.

Called the ‘Cloud Machine’, the device—consisting of a weather balloon and cloud-making gear—floats up towards the stratosphere to create small clouds, to make subtle alterations to the atmosphere.

When the Cloud Machine reaches a specific altitude, it disperses Cloud Condensation Nuclei (CCN), heat and water vapor.

In turn, the moisture in the air would condense into fog/cloud droplets around the CCN—forming into small clouds.


According to Sobecka, the method was inspired by a “geo-engineering technique proposed to create brighter, more reflective clouds which shield earth from sun’s radiation, and thus partly counteract the climate change.”
