Qatar Invents Artificial Flying Clouds To Block Sun Over Stadiums

Scientists at Qatar University have developed artificial clouds to provide shade over stadiums at the 2022 World Cup.

Saud Abdul Ghani, head of the mechanical and industrial engineering department at the university, said the ‘clouds’ are made from a lightweight carbon structure, and carry a giant envelope of material containing helium gas.

Four solar-powered engines move the structure via remote control.

Now this is really..really Impressive! 11 years are just too much to wait!
