    Nice concept.
    But it failed to show what the view would be like in the rings shadow. (ie. parts of South America)

      the ring's shadow would be over the southern hemisphere in the north's summer. and vice-versa right?

      living in wisconsin i hate to think what winter would be like being in a perpetual shadow.

    I bet if we pooled our resources we could construct something like this around the earth. I also figure it is worth mentioning that I don't know much about science.
