Climate change: “space bubble” shields can block the sun’s rays

Researchers at MIT are exploring the possibility of floating thin-film frozen bubbles on Earth to reflect the rays of the sun, called “cosmic bubbles.” This is a variation of the general geoengineering mindset of solar shields that block solar radiation, but because it is space-based, there is no risk of interfering with the Earth’s biosphere. … Read more
