Title: Catching a Tornado
Url: http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/ngm/0506/feature6/multimedia.html
Publisher: National Geographic Society (U.S.)
Description: This video, the first of its kind, was captured by a special probe fitted with seven cameras to provide vertical and 360-degree views of an approaching tornado. Students can see and hear an F4 tornado as it approaches, then view the swirling rain and debris as the storm actually passes over the probe. One camera failed during the event, yielding a 300-degree view of the storm. An interview with the researcher who developed and deployed the probe is included.
