Last Show Recap

Melvin Dummar says a grand conspiracy has denied him his portion of billionaire Howard Hughes' vast estate. Many consider Dummar to be a fraud but an in-depth investigation by Gary Magnesen has apparently shown Dummar to be a good samaritan who saved Hughes from certain death. Both joined George Knapp to discuss why Hughes was in the desert, as well as those who schemed to deny Dummar and several institutions of their rightful share of the Hughes estate. In the first hour, veteran music journalist Joel Selvin talked about the notorious Rolling Stones Altamont concert of 1969, considered by many to be rock’s darkest day.

Project Stormfury

Project Stormfury

Project Stormfury was an experimental program run by the US government from 1962 to 1983. The project's goal was to weaken hurricanes by seeding clouds in the eyewall of the storm with silver iodide. It was thought the silver iodide would cause supercooled water in the storm to freeze, disrupting the inner structure of the hurricane.
In the mid-80s, researchers discovered that hurricanes contained too little supercooled water for seeding to be effective. They further observed that seeded and unseeded hurricanes often undergo the same structural changes, which cast doubts on the program's results. This finding eventually led to the cancellation of Project Stormfury. Read more about Project Stormfury here(1).
