Students set a new solar powered record

Students from the University of New South Wales have set a new record time for the crossing of Australia using nothing but solar energy. The drive from Perth to Sydney in the Sunswift 3 eclipsed the previous record of eight and a half days, set in 1994, by 3 days.

It doesn’t present a practical alternative in the next five to 10 years but it shows that a group of students can drive across Australia with no fuel, then there probably is better alternatives for us to consider as a nation on where we go with our future transport.
