Does Mercury have enough mass/raw elements to construct an Inverse Dyson Swarm/Bubble (for lack of a better term)?
Inverse Dyson Swarm/Bubble Wiki -- a lot like the Dyson Bubble around the star, but instead it is wrapped around an individual planet.
Is there enough of Mercury to create a bubble around Venus, Earth, and/or Mars?
The idea has been thrown around that we could potentially create robots that will harvest Mercury to create megastructures. Instead of wrapping the sun, this thought experiment is could we mostly surround a planet with panels (in low orbit)?
The panels potentially could transfer power; and, direct the sunlight towards or away from a planet to help regulate temperatures closer to livable ranges (warm up Mars vs cool down Venus and potentially simulate 24 hour days).
If Mercury was harvested for something like this, how much of Mercury would it take for each planet? How much of Mercury would remain?
