Saw that. It was only a matter of time. Too bad they cannot get one inside.

Reed Timmer is working on shooting probes into tornadoes using what looks like Estes rockets, just like I used to play with when I was a kid.  He's had some circuit boards with sensors made that he can load into the rocket.  I hope they've got homing devices, because it would be extremely hard to find after being inside a tornado.

I'm not much of a tweeter, but he did talk some about it.
