Giant mirrors illuminate a valley town, new face grown on a patient’s chest, a reactor to melt hydrogen’s atomic core and more.

Three giant mirrors were erected on the hills above Rjukan, Norway, to reflect sunshine onto the town. Rjukan, known for its darkness in winter, is in the bottom of a valley between steep mountains in Telemark County, west of Oslo. The idea about mirrors reflecting sunshine to the town was brought up 100 years ago and only now became reality. They went into operation this week.
