Thanks fantastic CliffordK. I think that at about 1km in Diameter the balloon would have roughly 125 square kilometres of material.
I would say it need a he* of a lot of 'lighter air' At least initially. Then you have a problem..And as Clifford points out, a lot of astronomers, mathematicians and physicists benevolent silence.
I'm up for any suggestions that might get this project off the ground
Im curious as to how you're going to avoid it getting hit by all the space junk in orbit?
And if we keep this thread going long enough there will be plenty of hot air about to lift the thing off the ground.
