- Two mirrors facing each other 1 answer
Let's put an object (hypothetical superman) inside a "well sealed" box containing only mirrors. Is it possible to create number of images that will be close to infinity, assuming that resolution of our superman's eye is very small (infinitesimal) and he can observe and count all the images that he observes of himself.
If we assume that mirrors will leak some energy, then is it possible to put objects such as a photo multiplier tube (in combination with a mirror) and adjust it in such a way that only the amount of energy lost by reflection of the mirror is recovered and sent back to the other mirror.
What are the other hurdles ?
