The strangest Jacaranda tree ever!

The strangest Jacaranda tree ever!

I noticed this tree last year at this time. At this time of the year, the Jacaranda trees in Joburg (where I live) produce really beautiful purple flowers. The whole of Joburg looks like it is covered in a purple cloth, it’s really pretty. I have never seen a Jacaranda tree produce a flower of any other color, except this one odd one in the park near my house. Different color flowers on a Jacaranda tree would be odd on it’s own, but this Jacaranda tree goes beyond that. This tree has 2 x branches that produce white flowers, while the main stem/branch produces the normal, purple colored Jacaranda flowers. That’s right, 1 tree, 2 different color flowers, depending on the branch they are on! Strange to say the least!

The Awesome Power Of Sunlight

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.
