According to media reports in China, six satellites will create atmospheric corridors that can make the clouds moveable. This project is called "Tianhe", which means the sky is the river.
A Yicai Global report says the Shanghai Academy of Spaceflight Technology hopes to be in operation in 2022, although the first two satellites are scheduled to be in space two years earlier.

The Tianhe-1 satellites will be able to detect water in the air and move water to the northern area of Sanjiangyuan in Qinghai Province.
State media says that small drops will be transported within thousands of kilometers.
Models have been exhibited at Zhuhai Airshow, which contains the superpower aviation industry, and researchers believe they can develop a "sky river" to work.
