Honestly, I don't know why I sit here day after day 'working my fs to the bs' as I tap my way round this internet-thingie to find you good news to start your day. I have already provided you with a naked female cast playing The Tempest so it's a tough job coming up with something better than that. However, as you all know, D&N is the blog that keeps on giving! So, now let me tell you about the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System, the biggest - and I do mean the BIGGEST - solar plant in the world.
It just caught fire!
And the fire was caused by one of its mirrors!
Oh, stop it! You're making me laugh all over again and my keyboard almost blew a fuse with the tears dripping from my face!
According to the report at Popular Science, the frightfully brainy types who designed it all misaligned some of the mirrors which concentrated the heat of the sun in the wrong place. All this reminds me of an equally funny story concerning a high-tech and equally 'Greenie' building owned by [cr]Apple where the solar panels in the roof caught fire, According to the pv-Tech site, "[cr]Apple shifted the building’s purpose into that of a data centre, touting its green credentials."
Cue: hysterical laughter from deepest, darkest 'Zummerzet'!
