So in reading the referenced article, they started testing with 1/3 of the mirrors. The mitigation plan ("fix") was to reduce the number of mirrors for subsequent testing to reduce the solar flux. This tells me the stated 110 MW peak power is now really maybe 25 MW peak power? Otherwise, how many will they fry at full flux?

If only Brown HAD used "Hands Up, Don't Shoot", he would be alive today. "Hands Up, Don't Shoot", it's good advice, use the slogan in that way.
In accordance with United States Code, Title 5, Section 6103: The following are legal public holidays: New Year’s Day, January 1. Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr., the third Monday in January. Washington’s Birthday, the third Monday in February. Memorial Day, the last Monday in May. Independence Day, July 4. Labor Day, the first Monday in September. Columbus Day, the second Monday in October. Veterans Day, November 11. Thanksgiving Day, the fourth Thursday in November. Christmas Day, December 25. Until the appeasers change the US Code, it will remain Christmas. Also, it is still Washington's Birthday, not "Presidents' Day"

Not necessarily true Tacitus. If you are sitting in your living room watching TV and someone pries open your front door and is coming toward you, is he merely trespassing? Is he armed? Is he dangerous? Potentially dangerous? Does he have a gun? Knife? Bomb wrapped around his waist? He is walking toward you with his left hand in his jacket pocket and his right hand behind his back. You have about 2 seconds to make a decision. What do you do? Cops make these decisions every day. If you draw your gun and "could maybe" have used the Taser, you still live to go home to your wife and kids. If you draw your Taser and need the gun...no time, too late, you chose poorly.
The Atheists are demanding that the Military establish "Chaplains" for them so they have someone to talk to like the other religions do. So yes, Atheism is their religion which they would like the rest of us to 'establish'.
I'm all for the "Washington Foreskins" in honor of all the D!ckheads in government.

Or how about the Washington Foreskins since most of those in government are D!ckheads anyway.
Exactly John, It's like Prince George's County in Maryland; if it would secede as its own socialist state, the rest of Maryland would be decidedly red.

If a female were asking the questing, depending on her looks, she probably wouldn't have asked many more than one.
