  1. Yes, I believe it might be from the original testing and probably a show for the press, themselves to display, or maybe even a gimmick to give away or to sell. Either way it shows the power and efficacy of solar engineering, especially considering they were able to do it during a New England winter in the 50’s. The original furnace was moved from Natick Massachusetts to the southwest. If you want to see something really cool check out solar power towers.
  2. Found a really cool piece of history straight from the Cold War at its height of nuclear paranoia. I’ve been working in a old army warehouse doing fairly routine work when I came across a small dirt pile in a corner under a shelving unit. At first it seemed like maybe someone had torch cut a mount, but after further inspection I realized it was an 8”x8”x2” plate of steel with a hole burned in the middle of it. I thought maybe it was an example of a capable armor piercing ordnance or something, but encrusted in the dirt was a placard. It reads “US Army Quartermaster Corps Solar Furnace Febr
