We all know that Norway is a country with little sun. But the locals decided to correct this misunderstanding. In one of the small cities in the country, it was decided to illuminate the Central area is a real sun. But, as it shines all day, you have to make some tricks in the form of a giant mirror.
This town called Rjukan. It is home to not more than 3.5 thousand people. Unfortunately, each of them no opportunity to enjoy sunshine all year round. But now, thanks to this mirror, for the first time in a century they will be able to observe the sun in winter.
Already on October, 31 Central square of Rjukan will fill in sunlight. It will keep as long as the slopes of the mountains, at the foot of which lies the city itself, will be sufficient daylight.
One of the local magazines one of the most popular artists in Norway, Martin Andersen said that special heliostats in the amount of three pieces will follow the direction of the solar rays, directing them straight to the Central square of the town. In addition to sunlight every local resident will be able to enjoy its warmth, and even meet their own shadows.
Before starting a permanent job, had some tests. Note that all of them were successful, so the last day of October already can be called the Sunny day in the history of the town Rjukan.
