Well, it looks like we may have to take Mythbusters' conclusions with large grain of salt from now on. Dear old MIT managed to replicate a "myth" that the Mythbusters had "busted"

What was the myth in question?

Archimedes Death Ray!

Ah, makes me miss the good old days at the 'tute.


my officemates & i suspect it'd require many less mirrors in the greecian sun... they should totally hope down to miami to redo this expt, during the winter (not hurricane season) or hope out here to s. cal. massachusetts sun just isn't very bright!

whee! fire!
oops i meant hop, not hope. not sure where that came from...
Heh, I know if I was in charge of that project I'd have lobbied to do a test in a warmer climate, but I suspect the powers that be wouldn't be all that enthusiastic to foot the airfare to Greece (or Miami).
