    Yeah, but they DID get a plane to take off of a treadmill when everyone said they couldn't do it...

    I wonder how fast you would have to pass something through that heat without it getting too much damage. The whole pass your finger through the candle flame trick.

    Re: Melting Steel with Solar Power

    At the speed it took to melt the steel, I don't think a finger would fare too well, even if it was just a "flick".

    It was going faster than the treadmill. What a crock

    What a bummer it would be to walk in front of this thing at the wrong time!
