Caption: Storm research. Meteorologists from the Severe Thunderstorm Electrification and Precipitation Study (STEPS) prepare to launch a weather balloon into a storm. This is a tornadic supercell thunderstorm, a massive thunderstorm that is in the process of developing a tornado. The weather balloon carries instruments that will obtain data on temperature, pressure, wind speed and electrical fields within the thunderstorm itself. Photographed in Kansas, USA.
