Main Question or Discussion Point
Just wondering If it is possible to laser cool an object from afar or from a large distance away? Suppose you wanted to laser cool a planet with satellites in orbit around it, Would that be possible? Doesn't matter If they'd have to be ridiculously huge to have a noticeable effect or would take a very long period of time, Just wondering If it's possible. If not, then what is the threshold distance you can laser cool from if any?
