Homemade Solar Death Ray : Power of 5000 suns!


"The R5800 is my latest and greatest solar creation. Made from an ordinary fiberglass satellite dish, it is covered in about 5800 3/8" (~1cm) mirror tiles. When properly aligned, it can generate a spot the size of a dime with an intensity of 5000 suns! This amount of power is more than enough to melt steel, vaporize aluminum, boil concrete, turn dirt into lava, and obliterate any organic material in an instant. It stands at 5'9" and is 42" across."

    nice work kid. however, using parabolic mirrors (or mirrors in the formation of a parabola) to harness, utilize and intensify sunlight isn't such a new idea...many many great examples can be found on YouTube. so many different uses, yet very, very dangerous. i sincerely hope you don't plan on using that thing on other human beings? i'm just a bit suspicious/concerned of the 'name' you've given your project...a 'death ray'? ...seriously? it can be used for more peaceful purposes, i'm sure.
