parabolic solar concentrator -Solar “Death Ray”: Power of 5000 suns!

July 7, 2012 – 9:29 pm

The ** R5800 is my latest creation and more radiant. Realized in a normal satellite dish glass fiber, is covered in about 5800 3/8 “(~ 1 cm) mirror tiles. When properly aligned, can generate a spot size of a coin with an intensity of 5000 times the normal light of day. This light intensity is more than enough to melt steel, vaporize aluminum, cement boil, turn dirt into the lava, and delete any organic material in an instant. It is 5′9 “and 42″ in diameter. Unfortunately, the R5800 was completely destroyed in a storage shed fire December 14, 2010 Music:. ​​”hypnothis” provided under Creative Commons liscence spring of 2011: Sun Runner 3 R23000 (R23K) opening area of ​​flat (elliptical) = (pi x 102 cm x 73 cm) / 4 = 5848 cm square area of ​​focus (circular) = pi (0.6 cm) ^ 2 = 1.14 cm square power of concentration = 5848/1.14 = 5129 then rounded Estimated power = 560 watts Video Rating: 4 / 5

  2. could you have attached mirrors and lenses to make it possible to aim at different targets?

    you should make an even stronger one and try it

  4. no, the parabolic dish antenna already has the right shape so they are automatically at the right angle as long as they are small enough

  13. You need to put a small boiler at the focal point, connect it to a small generator.

    Gee, I have no idea where we can find a substitute for fossil fuels.

  14. Thats amazing. Make another!!! Did it cause the shed to burn down by the way?

  15. so that’s how archimedes set ships on fire..
    If you stay away like 10 meters away, can that set the wood on fire?

  18. Home Made Energy called Xobotano Home Energy (just google it) kept showing up here on different youtube and I thought they were scams. However after my mate follow it, and finally save a large amount of his electric bills by using it, I’m persuaded. You should not take my own word for it, search for Xobotano Home Energy on the internet.

  20. Other than creating things that destroy, do you also like to destroy things that create? Should I be worried? :)
