Solar Hot Air Balloon Vent
This technology is a solar hot air balloon vent that allows for the release of heated air at the command of a computer or remote control. By controlling the release of heated air from within the balloon, the altitude of the balloon could be adjusted at will. This control of altitude then offers the possibility of directional control as winds tend to...

GateKeeper: In Space Debris Detection Technology
Popularly predicted by Donald Kessler, the Kessler Effect seems to be more of a descriptor of the current low-Earth orbit conditions rather than a prophetic warning. The idea is that there are going to be so many satellites and other debris in low-Earth orbit that collisions between objects may become inevitable. Because of the high density of space...
