France is preparing to experience a new chapter in the face of heat wave To the alarming conclusions of the IPCC, questioning global warming is difficult. So, facing this situation, many scientists are trying to find a solution to reduce the temperature of our planet. today, A team of scientists at MIT has published a promising project.
Get out of spaceships and place space bubbles
To do this, scientists were interested in the concept proposed by astronomer Roger Angell. The latter envisioned a cloud of small spacecraft sent into space to help protect the Earth from the sun’s radiation. Using this principle, the target wasreduce or reverse Climate change. With the discovery of a new hole in the ozone layer, MIT scientists took this idea by improving it. For this, Instead of spacecraft, they replaced them with silicon bubbles.
The project called Space Bubbles is very simple A large sun visor made of many small bubbles connected to each other by molten silicon. The shield, about the size of Brazil, will be sent 1.5 million kilometers from Earth. Why this distance? Simply because it is From the Lagrange point L1, The space between the Earth and the Sun cancels the gravitational pull of our star and the gravitational pull of our planet. Indeed, the shield could, in theory, float without being attracted to one of the two stars.
2% off to save the planet
According to researchers who conducted laboratory experiments, Deflecting 1.8% of solar radiation would be enough to completely reverse the curve of global warming..
Unfortunately, it’s not the day before tomorrow when an anti-global warming shield like this is sent into space. MIT researchers say the project is still just a concept. And, they want more Find solutions to overcome many obstacles For example Raise bubbles out of spaceMake sure that Armor is resistant to meteor impacts And he Fine enough to filter a large area Rays of the sun. In this last step, the scientists announce that they can remotely repair or destroy the armor by bursting some bubbles.
