Solar Power burn!

Sun light is an amazing power source and we all remember the fun experiments we had using it in our backyards.

Grant Thompson posted a video showing how he uses solar power in his backyard science experiments.

The video was posted in December, but it has just experienced a viral surge over the weekend.

From a previous experiment, Grant got his hands on a giant older television with a perfect screen to create a dangerously powerful solar lens in his backyard.

The experiment may remind you ‘ant frying with a magnifying lens’ in our backgardens, but this DIY lens can literally melt metal, and instantly cause wood to ignite into flames.
