The summer wind blows hard, making the invisible air
visible by whipping the dust on the ground into dirt
devils, tiny tornados. you thought, there were only
tornados in the midwest. When us non-mid westerners say,
"yeah, I'VE seen a tornado before" that is what
we are referring to.
I imagine the solar winds, which are only found in outer
space. I do not actually know where one will find them.
However, I would imagine those types of winds are
actually just waves of electromagnetism flowing away from
their source, the sun.
I imagine these could be sailed using the same principle
one uses to sailclimactic winds, namely by the principal
of a wing. Sailing involves placing a sail which, is
really just a wing, into the path of the wind with the
wind blowing across it, causing it to undergo lift. And
since the sail/wing is firmly attached to a boat, the
forces generated by the lift on the sail/wing are
transferred to it.
Now, probably solar winds could be sailed in the same
manner. Using a method by which to detect solar winds
being pushed away from the sun, these too could be
harnessed, as are climatic winds used for traditional
Since these winds are generally invisible, hence no
matter is being moved, they would need to be made of say
solar collectors to turn the energy from the sun into
something such as physical energy. I don't actually see
how this could be done, but, the principle is there, and
conceivably it should be able to work.
