MIT & MythBusters Take on Archimedes' "Death Ray"

After the failure of Jamie and Adam to reconstruct a working model of Archimedes' death ray for Mythbusters, scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have taken up the challenge.

Archimedes was traditionally supposed to have used a bronze mirror and the rays of the sun to torch Roman ships during the battle of Syracuse. Now MIT professor David Wallace and his gang of students plan to rediscover the lost secrets.

Mike Bushroe is the Mundane name

Mike Bushroe is the Mundane name of HL Misha of Mastiff Manor. He brought the large scale version of the death ray to A&S in August and out to our Baronial event in Tucson in October. Very impressive.
