Solar "death ray" - power of 5,000 suns



This intensity of light is more than enough to melt steel, vaporize aluminum or boil concrete.

I just found funny and silly the ''power of 5000 suns" affirmation. But still very intriguing.

It makes one wonder what else is out there in the world with such destructive power beside nuclear energy. If a comoner like this man can come up with such a weapon on a small scale from natural means then what can the military do with a much bigger version? With a bigger version one can most certainly vaporize flying machines in the air or cause certain buildings to burst into flames, or even start forest fires etc...?

So, how could the focal point's energy be channeled without melting whatever is doing it? hummm Could an adjustable focal length structure be made that coordinates adjusting all 5,000 mirrors all at the same time. I guess if the project was sized up there would be room for such. Maybe by a fine thread screw adjustment? hummm Before the USSR fell into financial problems, the government was working on like geocentric satellite devices to reflect additional sunlight onto the Northern portions of the nation. They were to be pointed at the communities that specialized in coal mining, Baltic Sea fis... [More]

Mythbusters tried this but weren't able to do it as good.

Mythbusters tried this but weren't able to do it as good. Well they were trying to burn something very far away with mirrors positioned farther away from each other. Was hard to get them in that way from that far to focus well. But they were stuck having to do it that way to fulfill the requirements of the myth. This is a lot more compacted, and basically you have to stick whatever you want to heat right in front of the thing. Still good result for their hard work. Just wondering where the "power of 5,000 suns" bit came from. Does 1 mirror = 1 sun, or what? edit - Hmmm, I guess I understand ho... [More]
