Could moonlight be the key to a healthier happier life?
A group called Interstellar Light Applications is so serious about finding out, it's constructed a giant wall of mirrors, called the Interstellar Light Collector, to focus the light from the full moon on people standing about 100 feet away.
...After the death of a good friend to cancer and inspired by the hope of finding a cure, Richard Chapin, a lifelong science buff who attended the University of Arizona, and his wife, Monica, decided to build the ILA collector in the desert west of Tucson. It opened in May 2006.
This actually made the news last night, and not as a quick 30 second report, but a full segment with video and interviews (video available on the linked page too, so you can see the mirrors and the people standing in the moonlight). It irritates the heck out of me that they put this kind of stuff on the news. I annoyed my girldfriend because I kept yelling at the TV "It's just sunlight! Why don't you put a piece of white paper in the sun and stand in it's reflection, it will be just as effective at curing your cancer!"
