Apparently, when the wise men of FIFA awarded the 2022 World Cup to Qatar, one of the stipulations was that its newly constructed open-air soccer stadiums had to be air conditioned as summer temperatures are often 50 degrees.
It seems, though, that they have come up with another cunning plan which involves using remote controlled ‘planes’ or ‘drones’ to keep the players a bit cooler.
At least some of the nine stadiums will be cooled by using a fleet of solar powered ‘clouds’, designed and constructed by Dr. Saud Abdul Ghani and his team from the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering department at Qatar University.
The craft, which would travel exceedingly slowly, are to be made of 100 percent light carbonic materials and will initially cost half a million dollars each. But, of course, they can afford it.
