Most impressive!

I like to think that I stay up on the various technologies that would make such a thing possible, but I completely missed this (and it happened back in 2012!).

SolarWorld points the way to solar mobility. In 414 days the solar powered SolarWorld GT traveled a distance of more than 29,000 kilometers (18,020 miles) on its journey around the world 2011/2012. During the trip it not only crossed four continents and 16 countries, but also the equator – twice.

Hilarious!

"The car actually has an electric motor and a microscopically small battery, but they are only used to start the petrol engine – the electric motor does not drive the wheels. The petrol engine then uses a tank full of gasoline, a fossil liquid, to propel the car by exploding small drops of it. It is apparently the small explosions that you hear and feel when the engine is running."

"It looks like Avatar in here. It doesn't feel real," says Ginger Zee about a hidden place so hidden it's had fewer views than outer space.


I absolutely love that the fact such claims can still be made of our planet in this Modern Age.

Arcade revenue and CS PhD's, eh?  I buy it!

This is a veritable treasure trove of useless but fun data!
Colin Sullender originally shared to Data is Beautiful:
 
Spurious Correlations is a website that charts interesting correlations between wildly varying datasets. The project is meant to promote empirical research and interest in statistics. So while correlation does not imply causation, the relationship between people drowning in pools and Nicholas Cage film appearances is still eerily similar.

#Statistics   #Correlation   #Causation   #Data  
Why do these things correlate? These 15 correlations will blow your mind. (Is this headline sensationalist enough for you to click on it yet?)

Our week-long technology tour through Germany was designed to show you tomorrow's cleantech, today -- and ready or not, that includes FIA Formula E all-electric racing. Some time in the sparkling green future, when you pop the hood of your new electric vehicle, you could be experiencing technology developed on FIA tracks at cities around

"Ben Morfitt wrote a symphonic piece, performed all the parts, and composited it all together into this Orchestra of Ben Morfitts."

"I've never tried conducting before, so I'm not 100% sure what I'm doing, I just watched a load of videos of conductors and tried to do something similar to them," he says.
