A Trombe wall is a passive solar building technique where a wall is built on the winter sun side of a building with a glass external layer and a high heat capacity internal layer separated by a layer of air. Heat in close to UV spectrum passes through the glass almost unhindered then is absorbed by the wall that then re-radiates in the far infrared spectrum which does not pass back through the glass easily, hence heating the inside of the building.

Fiberglass water storage tube tanks for passive solar heating & cooling system Trombe walls. Prevent temperature swings in greenhouse or sunroom by storing excess solar energy.

It would be cool to encase aliens without contaminating the water somehow. Fiberglass water storage tube tanks for passive solar heating & cooling system Trombe walls. Prevent temperature swings in greenhouse or sunroom by storing excess solar energy.

this is pretty much exactly how we are builing our retirement home in SC.  Only it will be a little deeper but all spaced will be completely open to the windows in the front creating bay-like sections in the home for different rooms.   Can. Not. Wait.
