    as most you already know, the antics of the "president" and other frivolous subjects of the pop culture are not really important compared to the threat of world ending asteroid impact or nuclear strike from a unhinged leader of a rogue nation, possibly cause by the aforemented "president", therefore I suggest that someone with the technical know how put up a YouTube video demonstrating how to build device which focuses reflected sunlight anywhere in the sky. Make it be able to link up and sync with other devices like it.
    If people start to build these on the world wide scale we could, harness the vast unused energies of the sun and creat a planetary death ray array. We could use it for obvious things like burning off missiles fired by rogue nations, but it could also be used for other things like burning a picture on the moon or possibly weather control. Every act of the array has to be approved by each indivual device and if we could really be fun and bring the world closer together. What do you guys think?

    A crazy president is a far, far more imminent threat - by many orders of magnitude - than an asteroid.

    I think you've described a weapon that would be a far, far more imminent danger to life on the planet than all the other threats put together. Crazy presidents and rogue asteroids would pale in comparison to the threat of this weapon.

    So, your suggestion on how to make things better is actually a suggestion on how to make things much, much worse.

    Why would it be dangerous? Everyone would have to agree on how it's used, and and each individual device is not powerful by itself

    Yes. Because that is working so well with our current weaponry.

    I'm sure Japan gave a big ol' thumbs up to dropping an atom bomb on their cities when America asked them if it was all right.

    Just like America gave a thumbs up before N.Korea fired a missile at America.

    You're right. No weapon has ever been misused or misfired.

    You do know that the Archimedes Mirror is a joke, right?

    It won't be a joke if it's on a world wide scale

    Blinding pilots.
    Shooting down planes.
    Shooting down satellites.
    Shooting it at orbiting mirrors that can deflect it to shoot at cities.
    Re-engineering it so it can shoot at the ground.

    And those are just a few off the top of my head.

    Why would people who build these kinds of devices agree to do that sort of thing? They won't these people will be educated engineers

    Yes, it will. For one thing you only have a certain number of degrees of latitude and longitude where the sun strikes at an angle that would be of any use at all.

    That's one of the questions people were trying to answer after WWII.

    There never was an answer to it regarding Auschwitz's ovens. The best answer I ran across regarding Nagasaki was from Richard Feynman: "We just didn't think, Ok?"

    Ok but it will give a window where we can use it, why is that not a good thing?

    BTW, spherical geometry doesn't care how important this is to you.

    Yeah they had mirrors back then, we have computers that can sync up millions of mirrors to a single point, and each I individual mirrors warping it's shape to focus on the target how is that not awsome
