Totally blown away by these etchings by Denver artist Jason Thielke. I bet this guy knew how to use a spirograph as a kid. Found on the exceptional Pattern Pulp.

Melting Rock with the Sun

This is a clip from the Solar Furnace Research Facility in Southern France that has a device capable of focusing the sun’s rays into a giant death laser that reaches temperatures around 3,500 Fahrenheit (or 1,926 Celsius). The real kicker being that it only takes as much sun as would hit three sunbathers to melt rock. Goooo science! (via devour)
