The Ivanpah solar power plant at Las Vegas is so massive that its 170,000 garage door sized mirrors are blinding the pilots flying nearby. Nope, that's not safe at all.

The Clark County Department of Aviation sent a letter earlier this week urging the plant's designers to do something about the glare, reports KCET.

One pilot describes flying near Ivanpah was like "looking into the sun."

The 170,000 mirrors shift to track the sun across the sky, so really, you don't want to be looking down at all. Will they be able to incinerate a plane from the ground with the heat reflected? Heat-ray? Heat-gun? What do you think?

Maybe they should make that area a no-fly zone? Obviously. [KCET]
