Artificial Clouds to cool 2022 World Cup

Artificial Clouds to cool 2022 World Cup

Thanks to member Andrew Maclean for sending us the link to this story….

Apparently, scientists at Qatar University claim to have developed artificial clouds to provide shade for stadia and training grounds at the 2022 World Cup.

Qatar, as we know, can get a little bit warm so the plan to air condition their stadia will be welcomed by the players, especially if it works!

But for cloud lovers, who have always marvelled at their beauty at no cost to ourselves, will be amazed that the cost of producing an artificial cloud is £310,000 ($500,000).
