WELCOME to a world of adventure and achievement - the very latest in progressive technological thinking and projects. This website is crammed with information for students of renewable energy, robotics, boat design, eco houses, genetics and other important issues such as how we got here and where we a going, the futility of war, famine and peace. The website is in English only because we don't have the resources to translate generally. We wanted to let you know that nationality and religious beliefs make no difference to us, we think of our fellow man as one large family. It's a wonderful planet we live on and we are so very lucky to be here, we should do our very best to cooperate to manage our resources, fairly and sustainably for all of our neighbors. In the words of Albert Einstein:
"Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.”
Our mission is to help people focus on the important issues to reduce conflict, such as energy for living, food, water and transport, essential to life on Earth. We are working toward a sustainable global economy for our blue planet. Please use the links in the navigation bars to search our site by subject and thankyou for visiting us.
Every living thing on earth is a passenger on our precious blue planet. The Earth is like a giant spaceship (8,000 miles in diameter) relentlessly Navigating the Solar System on automatic pilot locked in a gravitational sequence, much the same as we must live on the land (well, maybe that will change one day). Hence, we are all Solar Navigators, and as the only genuinely intelligent species in our solar system at the moment, it is our responsibility to find ways to sustain our ecology to keep our planet clean and habitable for all future generations of Solar Navigators.
Our Earth spins as it orbits its prime energy source. It is the tilt of the spinning Earth, and its elliptical passage as it orbits the Sun that dictates how much energy the spherical surface of our Earth receives throughout the day, and throughout the year. This natural pattern of energy reception has shaped the patterns of life in plants and animals. This is why there are seasonal migrations of birds and fish and why animals have adapted to suit their territorial conditions, to include the timing of mating and birthing. It will also dictate the route of any solar powered boat. So too, should we as a species adapt to our changing circumstances and move away from dwindling fossil fuels to renewable energy.
Okay, that may be a bit heavy, so apart from educational articles and reporting important global events via this website, our mission is more down to earth - to conquer the oceans at a respectable pace with a SOLAR powered vessel. We hope this pioneering work will push the boundaries of man's technological achievements forward as a practical example of renewable energy in use. The "World Electric Challenge" is a voyage of discovery encompassing scientific observation and data collection, in between just sailing and the ocean adventure.
Other important issues that we are looking at is low cost energy self-sufficient housing and electric vehicles that refuel instantly to dispel range anxiety. We believe that when these issues are tackled seriously by our world leaders, that apart from limited food and water for a growing population, that many of the things that cause us to go to war (such as oil) will no longer be important.
The Solar Lady - Ships figurehead, symbolic of our quest for human advancement
Electric boats don't pollute our oceans with chemicals, noise, or deplete the Earth's energy reserves. The use of clean renewable energy is kind to marine life and helps prevent global warming. Solar cars are also clean and kind to city dwellers. The average speed of a solar car is now around 50 mph - this vast improvement is simply because a lot of students (with the generous support of their sponsors) have built a lot of cars to race each other. As they say, racing improves the breed. We would like to set a new world record for others to beat. Please help us if you can and join in the fun as we endeavor to encourage others to travel as no man has gone before. Time stands still for no man at the moment. Make the best of your short stay on Earth

When a pirate whaler kills a small humpback whale, a largercompanion sinks the pirate ship to avenge the death, but is itself wounded. The pirates put a price on the whale's head, but an adventurer in a robotic boat races to beat the pirates and save the wounded animal.
This modern adventure story by Jameson Hunter is due to bereleased late 2013 or early 214 as an e-book with hopes for a film in 2015 or soon thereafter.
