How to boil an egg with the sun


Can you boil an egg, using only the focused power of the sun, in gray and drippy Kent? Yes. If you have a whole weekend to spend on it. (Well, not a whole weekend; three hours to build the kettle and an hour to cook the egg will do.) The cooker is basically on the standards solar oven principle, except covered with simple foil instead of being made of real metal. Be warned do not touch the cooking pot without a glove or cloth as it does get very hot. I actually got blistered by it!!!!!!! [GT]
