Vacuum Balloon?


Recommended Posts

I'm curious whether or not it is possible to make a vacuum by taking a rigid, hollow sphere and forming a vacuum inside of it. Presumably this is possible if you just assume the material it is made out of is infinitely strong and rigid (it just needs to weigh less than the equivalent volume of air). However, I'm curious if this is possible with any materials we know about.
