Question of the Day

Yesterday we asked: A few weeks ago, a woman visiting the 14th Factory gallery in Los Angeles accidentally destroyed $200,000 worth of artwork. What was she doing to set off the “domino effect” that caused all the damage?

Answer: Of course she was taking a selfie.

Congrats to...Dan Rosenbaum, first of many to tweet the correct answer. Brian Gluckman added, “No word on if any sticks were harmed in the destruction of the artwork,” and Karin Leperi tells us, “some reports suggest it was a publicity stunt.” Heather Hughes noted, “I wish her phone had been accidentally set to video.” Lucky for all of us, someone did catch the whole spectacle on video.

Your question of the day for today is…Who was the atmospheric scientist credited with discovering that a silver iodide solution could be used to “seed clouds” to produce snow and rain? Bonus points if you can identify his brother, who is probably the more well-known of the two (at least outside of meteorology circles).
