Busted myth

Dear Editor:
While I’m all in favor of new technology and especially solar power (“Solar Power: It’s About Time”, 5/2/13), the story about Archemedes having set a ship ablaze with mirrors reflecting the sun’s rays is a myth that has been “busted” several times over the last few centuries.
