  • 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.

  • 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

  • I wonder if the mirrors still would have broken if the infrared spectrum of the light could mostly be excluded. After all, most mirrors don't reflect infrared light.

  • 6:00 Thermally shocked 8:50 Spread the equal heat to entire surface of the mirror first before scorching to avoid thermal shock. The sun beam hits though the glass part before reflective part. Second surface glass 10:58 There even a commercially purchaseable solar cooker

  • Would you get better results reflecting the sunlight off the mirror, then through the magnifier onto the heating/cooking service? I imagine that the best service would be made of something like cast iron. You should be able to control the cooking temperature by moving the focal point in and out.
