    This technology has advanced to much greater efficiency recently. Near Gila Bend Arizona one is being built now that super heats a form of salt, allowing electrical generation to continue even after the sun sets. We need more of these facilities, as Arizona has sunshine almost every day and the desert has little use for anything else.

    The French machine is much older, but appears to be in a much better state.

    You said it was the largest in the world, then you went on to say how the one in France was a little bit larger. Howzat?

    Too bad we build some of these so they can actually supply some power, instead of just experimenting with them.

    Your site is fascinating and I find the old photo’s and stories from the Soviet era most interesting. Your english is very good.

    Should use it to cook corporate fascists, vulture capitalists (repetitive phrase), the current government of Uzbekistan, and N. Caucasus terrorists. Of course, “by will of the Communist party.”

    You can guess what its prime use in Uzbekistan is.
