Town with no sun - level 2

Town with no sun - level 2

07-11-2013 06:00

A Norwegian town gets sunlight only 6 months a year because of very high mountains around it.

Residents can take a cable car to the top of one mountain and see the sun there, but they now have another option as well. They can simply go to the town centre, thanks to mirrors which beam the light from top of the mountain.

The mirrors are controlled by a computer which adjusts the mirrors to reflect as much light as possible. This new invention is so popular that other towns may build similar projects.

Difficult words: beam (send), adjust (move), invention (project).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
