Question of the Day

Yesterday we asked: 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 identify his brother, who is probably the more well-known of the two (at least outside of meteorology circles).

Answer: That was Bernard Vonnegut, older brother of Kurt.

Congrats to…Craig Pittman, first to tweet the correct answer. Honorable mention to N. Clement Weather, who reveals, “P.S.: Kurt wrote descriptions of his brother's research for General Electric house organs - the GE museum in Schenectady NY has copies!”

Your question of the day for today is…Discussing a lifelong fear of hers, Oprah Winfrey once said, “My grandmother used to save it in little rows in the cabinet. I’d be scared to touch it because it was so gross.” What is she afraid of?
