This spring two Russian satellites will be orbited
This spring two Russian satellites will be orbited with the task of blocking natural disasters and lighting certain spots on the Earth's surface. They will use the simple method of reflected light from thin-filmed space reflectors, writes Moskovsky Komsomolets. According to Aerospace Systems, thin-filmed reflectors are a kind of a sail made of modern materials that feel like a mixture of foil and cellophane. The most difficult task is to open the 25m sail in space. It is believed that the miracle sail will be able to correct weather, sending reflected light and warming the clouds to ensure good weather for a football match, for example. The same goes for tornadoes, which are provoked by a concentration of low pressure in some areas, where air is sucked in giving birth to a violently rotating column of air. As soon as such dangerous concentrations are registered, the satellites would send a ray of reflected light there, heating the air and raising the pressure, which will prevent the emergence of a tornado. If the orbital mirror is used as a giant sun umbrella, for example over a volcano, this will help to quickly and effectively freeze its activity and hence prevent an eruption or an earthquake. The sail can be used to make daylight in a limited territory. To create a 5km light spot, the scientists need a 30x30m sail; but the sail must be 300x300m to light up a big city such as Moscow. The technology is also being used to create BioRange gauges that will be able to detect the aura of any particular person.
