Submission + - Solar Powered UAV to set the World's Endurance Rec

Iddo Genuth writes: "A team of students from the Technion Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa is working on a new solar powered unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) which they hope will soon break a 17 year old world aviation record. Although solar aviation is nothing new, it is still considered to be in its infancy. The work done at the Technion as well as elsewhere around the world is starting to attract the attention of the aviation industry with the hope of creating green aircrafts with a much higher endurance threshold."

Machines certainly can solve problems, store information, correlate, and play games -- but not with pleasure. -- Leo Rosten
