ECCE THE IDEA
Instead of making the walls of the Vacuum Balloon in a unique round piece, which will be inevitably very thin, if we would use many hollow bricks, like the ones used for buildings, and then we fill them with foam or another ultra-light material, we would obtain a 360° vaulted structure, that, according to the principles on which the Roman arch is built, would be resistant and able to effectively counter the Buckling.
Right now, all this has been verified with a 3D simulation program that confirmed the validity of the hypothesis. Obviously, this is a virtual confirmation. To really confirm the hypothesis, it’s necessary to create a prototype of a Vacuum Balloon, and this is the first goal of the O-Boot project.
