Thought this kind interesting as i read this on Discover Magazine about a company in California called ''Cool Earth Solar'' who is developing specific Balloons to hover over the landscape and capture the Suns rays onto the Balloon surface which is covered of cheap Plastic and Aluminum. Kinds far fetched but it shows that others are thinking outside the box about these things.
