Abstract:

Grab your sunglasses: we're going to harness the sun to drive two new solar reflective power towers in the United States. This show is definitely not for the superstitious as master rigger Sean Riley joins a crew lifting two 65-ton boilers 160 feet up to two towers and suspending them above 24,000 mirrors - completing America's first large scale solar power tower. Pioneering science in the race to compete with fossil fuels, this project may redefine solar energy and promise a bright career for all of these engineers. But expectations are high and the crew is learning as they go. Weeks behind schedule, the plan is constantly changing. As if things weren't stressful enough, the sea of mirrors always looms and the threat of being cooked alive. One slip up and it's going to be way more than seven years bad luck.
