Marc, it sounds like you should have been here at the height of our first Cosmic
Ray observatory.
We had 2 meter parabolic mirrors with which we could boil and detone/explode
a full cola
can when placed at the focus.
Great explosion with coke all over h---.
You put the coke on the end of a very long pole so you didn't get sprayed.
The average time to detonation was 8-10 seconds! Zig

Howdy-

Many years ago, Bill Beaty suggested a way to make a
very large solar furnace. See
<http://www.amasci.com/amateur/mirror.html>.

Well, someone has actually put one together, and it
works pretty well. See
<http://www.solardeathray.com/>.

You'll want one too. Of course, you could just get a
giant fresnel like the one sold at Electronic Goldmine

I have one of these. They are rather impressive and,
well, dangerous.
