- Just how unrealistic is a hovering city? 14 answers
Today we face a major problem which is overpopulation, and all the governments around the world are working together to find a solution to this problem before it's too late. Luckily one of our brilliant scientists has been playing Bioshock Infinite lately, and he was inspired by this video game to build a city that floats above the clouds, so my questions are :
1 - Is it possible to build such a city with today's technology ?
2 - Approximately how much will it cost ?
3 - Is it possible for at least 5000 people to live in such a city ?
If this turns out to be ok, many other floating cities will be built around the world to sustain more of the earth's population so it's up to you to decide whether to accept this project or not.
EDIT : These cities will be used for housing people only, so no industry, agriculture or any other type of service will exist in such cities.
