I wonder when companies will realise "Hey look at us, we're not racist or sexist, we've hired a bunch of women and non-caucasians!" is in itself racist and sexist. on Google gtfo (Upvotes: 61)

I imagine there’d be other, more pressing, repercussions to having a tunnel of air between the Sun and the Earth. Assuming this tunnel follows the Earth perfectly and doesn’t dissipate as we orbit the Sun, the first immediate problem would be how bloody cold it suddenly is. The atmosphere is only around 70-100km high, however now it’s effectively 150 million km. that would mean all the photons would interact with the air and bounce away, leaving a vast minority of them to actually warm the Earth. And then there are the satellites currently in orbit, if any were to go through the tunnel it would slow down and they would eventually fall back to the ground. So in chronological order: 8 minutes after the tunnel is introduced, it gets really really cold. A few days/weeks later, the satellites come crashing down. 14 years later, the noise begins.
