The opening ceremony for the 2020 Olympics may feature something we’ve never seen before.
Japanese company ALE has designed a way to trigger an artificial meteor shower, and now it’s bidding to open the next Olympic Games in Tokyo.
The man-made meteor shower will feature 500 to 1,000 “source particles” that will each serve as a mock meteor. The company will launch a satellite into space that’s designed to drop the particles once it reaches a certain altitude.
Each particle is just a few millimeters across, but once they hit the atmosphere, they’ll burn up through a process called plasma emission and put on a spectacular light show.
Feel free to leave a comment. We would like to know what you think.
