When the 2022 World Cup is held in the Middle Eastern country of Qatar, fans won’t be bothered by the intense sun and high temperatures. That is because scientists in that country have designed artificial clouds that will provide shade and lower the temperature inside the stadium. Solar-powered air conditioning will be supplemented with the clouds, which are made from light-weight carbon structure that carries helium gas. FIFA (Federation Internationale de Football Association) president Sepp Blatter had originally said the tournament should be held in the cooler winter months, but is now convinced the scientists have come up with a good solution to beat the heat.
Isn’t it cool? Athletes and fans will feel comfortable during the entire event.
