THIS idea is not rocket science, but you would need a few rocket scientists and engineers to achieve it.
That is, if it is achievable. To place a space craft in an optimum position between us and the sun is, I would imagine, a huge task. But then again, Alexander the Great would have thought a satellite was impossible.
It might just be a matter of time. If we could do this it may just give us the ability to control our weather.
All our weather patterns are driven by the sun and also factors on the planet's surface such as foliage, cloud cover and atmospheric conditions due to us or volcanic activity.
By cooling areas of oceans which are hotspots for hurricanes, this would potentially help to prevent the hurricanes becoming super strength. It could save lives and billions of dollars in damaged property or flooding like that which was seen in the New Orleans floods caused by Hurricane Katrina.
It really is just an idea. Please send it on to any scientists you may know who could shed some more light on the possibility of a Deep Space Solar Parasol.
