Solar Powered Clouds

I am not a big soccer fan, but wild and crazy ideas fascinate me. Imagine being in a hot outdoor stadium...
with no way of cooling down. Now imagine that place is in Qatar for the 2022 World Cup. A PHD in the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering department from Qatar University, designed a $500,000 solar powered cloud to cool the stadium. WIth the intent of building 9 of these, most would say that's a lot of money, but in Qatar...that is pocket change.
