Texas is renowned for its diversity of land and people. What isn’t commonly known is that we also lead the nation in declared natural disasters.

Hurricane season began Friday and it lasts until Nov. 30. Peak season is typically around the end of August. This year, we have already had our first named storm, Alberto, and there are 16 to 17 more named storms predicted.

The system, which sounds like something out of science fiction, uses pulsed energy beams to study and manipulate electrically charged particles in the high atmosphere.

It has civilian and military applications and could challenge US dominance in both spheres.
