Hmmm. Well, it's hard to tell what the problem is. Based on my experience of Archimedes's ideas, my guess it that modern folks simply aren't up to his snuff yet. Kinda hurts our modern egos to believe we're not the pinnacle of mankind.
MHA,You've got a valid point but what technology does modern man, and his ego, know better than mirrors?
What with the description of a "stream of fire", I wonder if the actual weapon wasn't some sort of flame thrower? The mirrors? Smoke and mirrors is not a new concept.
From the discription and the laws of optics I must assume that Archimedes's created a compound lense.This modern crew sounds like they have built a sun tan machine, instead.
