Have you always wanted to create your own Wizard of Oz moment and send an object flying into the air? If so, the "Into the Tornado" simulator from The Weather Channel is what you've been waiting for.

Once you've tried it out once or twice, you can use what you have learned to make a hypothesis about how far the object will go at a different wind speed.
