    In today's video we're taking a comment request from you asking if the solar scorcher can melt a mirror, or will it simply bounce off?

          Why didn't you use a silver mirror, like something from the 17-1800's? Essentially polished silver... it won't break and should be able to withstand the heat.

                the metal of the pan is too reflective, you need to make it black for it to absorb light energy faster

                              Did any one realize when the mirror was on fire it was rainbow

                              Why did it do that?? ☺

                                          i just want to say the question "how can mirrors be real if our eyes aren't real?" is really messing with my head

                                          It is 7 years bad luck if you break a mirror... I wonder how many years bad luck you have... 100?

                                            If the mirror is silver on copper thick enough to conduct heat or has water cooled or air cooled to transfer heat to air it might permanently reflect the light heat to make a solar cooker.
                                            The mirror might not break

                                                Maybe make a watercooled mirror so like a big piece of super polished aluminum with holes running through it and you could have a big drum of water, simultaneously solar water boiling and reflection for cooking, it's like a solar stove
