Geologist Uses New Radar Tech to Find Underground Water

Alain Gachet is a modern-day Moses. His hair is biblically white but unbiblically short. He has produced water “abundantly” from the rock in some of the world’s most pitiless deserts – Darfur in the western Sudan, northern Kenya and now in Ethiopia.

Mr Gachet is not a prophet but a French geologist. His instrument is not a rod but radar images of Earth taken from satellites. He has devised a computer programme which can unscramble surface obstructions and expose water “shining” far underground.
