All Solar-Powered Boat? You bet!

We just learned about this 102-foot catamaran that circumnavigated the globe under the power of the sun!Right now, it’s traveling the over 8,000 kilometers from Miami to
Norway. Most of that trip will be spent in the Gulf Stream, a powerful ocean current that’s one of the main driver’s of weather
and climate in Europe and North America. There are scientists on board the boat collecting information on temperature and water chemistry that will help improve weather prediction models and provide important information for understanding climate change.
