Title: Discovering the Jet Stream
Concept: A meteorological discovery with military significance
Detail: As meteorologists began to probe the upper atmosphere with balloons in the 1920s and 1930s, they were aware that winds usually increased with height up to 30,000 - 40,000 ft. However, it was not until routine B-29 bombing raids began over Japan late in World War II, did it become apparent that the jet stream core winds could be confined to relatively narrow bands (a few hundred miles across and thousands of feet deep), and that they could reach speeds of ~250 mph. Some bombers actually found themselves hovering nearly stationary over their targets while flying westward into the jet stream's westerly winds.
