Ship of the Future? A Solar Sail Boat.

Well, it's not unusual to see wind-powered boats. But it is strange to see sails in an entirely new form...and also, to see them covered in photovoltaic cells.

The Solar Sailor is a ferry that transports people around Sydney harbor using about half has much fuel as it would need without its solar panel-covered wings. The wings are movable to allow the panels to track the viagra usa sun when it's sunny. Or, if more energy can be gained from the wind, they can act as traditional sails. Finally, when weather is too rough for the sails to canada levitra prescription be out, they simply flatten against the ferry and levitra be ordered in usa the diesel motor takes over.

The Solar Sailor first started tooling around Sydney five years ago during the Olympics. But, so far, the idea hasn't spread. There is talk, however, of a similar design taking over tourist trips to the Statue of Liberty!

the Statue of Liberty deal fell through......but, this same technology (solar cells to drive electric motors and propellors.....backed up with bio-diesel) will be used for FLYING.

giant airships have the prescription viagra room needed for enough solar cells to power them, and airships can fly on only best offers 50 mg cialis bio-diesel; which airplanes cannot do.

it is the future of flight!

That's so cool! Last month I did my monthly current event for SS on A Floating Solar Island for the UAE, and now I am doing the current event on this article. Deffo a sailboat of the future (or present).
Every little bit helps
