That thing looks exactly like the contraption Myth Busters built on an episode I saw. They were trying to recreate the death ray that Archimedes
supposedly built and used to catch enemy ships on fire. To make a long story short they couldn’t align or sync the mirrors enough to focus the beam
to light the mock ship hull on fire, but it heated it up pretty good.
On the subject of solar rays someone was telling me about some crazy experiment the govt was planning to do. They wanted to use a huge matrix of
mirrors and lens to amplify the sun’s rays to recreate the sun so to speak. The idea was that at the bottom of the mirror/lens array the solar rays
would be amplified back to the level of the sun! The fear was that if they created a new sun on earth they wouldn’t be able to shut it off, put it
out etc!! I have searched around a little and haven’t found anything about it and was hoping someone else knows something?
Why go through all that trouble when one can simply have the current laser weapons that will do more than just heat something up or the new microwave
type weapons that will melt your skin off then cook you or you can use it to heat up something with it.
The problem is that the Earth won't stand still. So if you need an UberDeathRay that ONLY works at 12:45 pm, then it's a go. If you need it to
work in the dark, when Captain Nefarious is skulking about, then I suggest you try another Incredibly Deadly Weapon.
Like a chocolate creme pie. If the velocity doesn't kill them, the sludge in their arteries will.
