This is mindblowing, watch how researchers use 2 square meters of sunlight (as much as 3 people sunbathing would gather), focus it and MELT ROCKS! That’s right, melt rocks. Now if we can do this, why can’t we use this tech to generate power and much, much more.

Jem Stansfield travels to the Solar Furnace Research Facility in Southern France. He witnesses the incredible power generated by highly concentrated sunlight.
