Main Question or Discussion Point
I've always had an idea as to how to stop tornado's, and this is my idea. The idea is that we use Jet engines mounted onto the back of trucks, or vehicles, that are capable of handling them, with them also able to handle large amounts of fuel. Jet engines are extremely powerful. The SR-71 Blackbird uses a Pratt & Whitney J58 Jet engine, that is capable of reaching Mach 3.35. Mach 3.35, is equal to 2570.352 Miles per hour. The fastest winds ever recorded in a tornado, were 318 Miles per hour, recorded in the Oklahoma City tornado, occurring on May 3, 1999. The J58 Jet engine's force completely OVER KILLS the fastest winds ever recorded in a tornado, and the J58 is just a prime example, of the many commercial grade engines available to use aswell, that could create nearly the same force. Also, it's known that just a simple commercial jet engine, has the thrust capability of ripping pavement off of a Runway, which is why aircraft seldom use maximum power taking off. What I am asking is this: If jet engines could logically become deployed in front of a tornado, and used, could it stop the tornado? Their are three main ways I would do it. The first way, is to blow the jet engine at the tornado, possibly moving the tornado away from it's destination (a populated area), and severely disrupting it's force. Another way to fight a tornado, is to point the Jet engine away from it, creating a vacuum like affect, severely disrupting the tornado aswell. The last way to fight it is to disrupt the fast moving winds that blow across the plains of tornado ally (or areas like it), to severely disrupt a tornado's formation, or existence. It's also known that a tornado needs a cold, rainy downdraft along with a warm updraft. Some suggest that heating this cold, rainy downdraft will prevent a tornado's existence. A jet engine, could also provide this heating capacity, in order to disrupt a tornado, and it's structure. I'd like this question to be answered, as the logical questions (such as how costly or how would it work), would work themselves out. These trucks would be very large trucks, possibly having an off road capability. To test the hypothesis of if this would work, small commercial grade Jet engines or Aircraft engines, could be deployed against smaller tornado's, to see if the idea would work. Then, communities facing dangers of large or super tornado's, could upgrade these Jet engines. Please give feedback, would this work? Also, if you have a logical question as to how this operation would work, please ask as well, as I will answer. Thanks!
