Sky temperature profiles and black body radiation

  1. Jun 1, 2015 #1
    I want to know, excluding the sun with an appropriate boundary, whether it is possible for the balance of bbr to be positive for outerspace rather than on earth? I am thinking of a half convex with an active polariser across-the outer surface which allows through most radiation below the temperature you desire.
