HAMSTERDAM HAS SOLAR POWER

Not interested in Hamsterdam having Diesel Power? Want some clean energy because you're a hippie or something?

That thing there is the world's largest and most powerful solar furnace, located in the Pyrennes between France and Spain. It reflects a massive amount of sunlight into a single focused beam that can heat up to 6,000 degrees celsius. Far more than frying an ant on a sidewalk, that's enough to be comparable to half the surface temperature of the sun. It's used for things as innocuous as generating electricity to as cool as turning coal into carbon nanotubes.

Have a happy Hamsterdam, all. Let's see if you can blow this one out in 8 hours again.
