What are the most amazing and interesting facts you know? by Ashok Reddy

Answer by Ashok Reddy:

A village called Viganella receives no sunlight for 84 days in winter.

This is a village of 127 people in Italy. As you can see, this village is located in a valley between the Alps. These peaks are about a mile high and completely block sunlight.

And this place suffered this for 800 years.

Now, why didn’t they relocate?

I have no idea.

If they’ve lived there for 800 years, then obviously they must have gone through every possible solution, right?

Turns out they didn’t. A solution was found. In 2006.

So, how did they solve this complex problem?

Simple. Just install a huge mirror. A giant 26 foot mirror.

The mirror is controlled remotely by a computer which tracks the sun’s movement and positions itself accordingly to provide a constant stream of sunlight.

The entire project cost just $100,000.

Much cheaper than relocating the entire village….
