New tech uses A.I. to melt metal out of rocks with sunlight2021|01:09
The Telegraph reports that a secretive startup backed by Bill Gates has achieved a solar breakthrough that could really help the planet. The company, called Heliogen, has discovered a way to use artificial intelligence and a field of mirrors to reflect so much sunlight that it generates extreme temperatures above 1,000 degrees Celsius. This is much more heat than traditional solar farms can produce, making it the first version of concentrated solar technology capable of baking cement and melting steel and glass.
