First Iron Melt

LIFE Prometheus team members were successful in accomplishing their first iron melt using Prometheus solar technology on the 10th of July 2009.  What started as a routine bronze melting procedure using the Beta-Gamma prototype yielded groundbreaking results.  Unbeknownst to team members, while melting the bronze samples, the iron melting ladle became so hot that a portion of the ladle melted away.  This unexpected landmark accomplishment offers further proof of the power of Prometheus technology.
