Re: Might it be an opportunity?

Actually I have a PhD in Microfluidics, having done my undergrad in Mechatronics. I also have industrial experience as a controls and inst. engineer for gas turbines.

A highly reflective surface and or shadowing the unit behind solar collectors which provide energy is a very workable solution.

The cross section is not planet sized at a considerable distance from Mars. In the same way a coin held against a lightbulb casts a shadow far larger than itself on far away walls.

My grasp of physics is fine thank you very much.

I think you may suffer from a lack of vision.
