Solar boat makes Atlantic history

Solar boat makes Atlantic history ... A five-strong Swiss crew have sailed into history by completing the first solar-powered transatlantic crossing.... A similar-sized boat would have used about 72 litres of diesel every 24 hours on the same voyage.... During the day, the 48 solar panels on its roof gather energy from the sun. The power is stored in batteries, which allow it to sail through the night."

We could do a lot with just part of the cost of the Iraq war.
