In Search of Coolth
« on: November 10, 2020, 05:11:15 AM »
This wasnít on my radar.  Itís a radical innovation that would seem to have enormous consequences. I havenít found a retail source for this stuff, but Iím investigating.

Short version.....a thin plastic film that reflects the heat of the sun....and also promotes heat loss into space. You can make ice at temperatures above freezing using this trick of physics.

What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.

That is quite interesting. There will of course be a balancing of energy so you would be moving heat around not really getting rid of it.
If its important then try something, fail, disect, learn from it, try again, and again and again until it kills you or you succeed.
