This Crazy Boat Just Completed The First Solar-Powered Sail Around The World

When Magellan first circumnavigated the earth five centuries ago, he never could have dreamed of that someday it would also be done on a boat powered by the sun. Well now, aboard the MS Tûranor PlanetSolar, Raphael Domjan has done just that. Following the equator to get as much sun as possible, the boat stopped in cities all around the world to show off the boat. Domian’s ultimate goal was to prove that solar energy is a practical option to solve some of our most pressing energy problems. Check out this the rest of this awesome article here. Tell us what you think. Do you think solar energy is practical? Should we be trying to harness more of it?
