Archimidis Death Ray -The Preconceived Myth

"During the siege of Syracuse in 212 BC, Archimedes made a burning glass to burn up the enemy Roman warships".

This happened to be one of the much debated Archimidis technology. Also recently caught sight in the MythBusters that busted the Archimidian Death Ray to be a myth.

Again Archimidis Wins, but this time its not the victory over the Roman War ships, but over those who preconceived it to be a myth and the MythBusters.

The Work from MIT definitely seems to put to an end for this controversial debate. The Effort is really worth the results.

See the Video.
