Planetsolar has completed its journey as the first solar powered boat to circle the world. The top of the catamaran is covered in a spread of photovoltaic panels and over 38,000 solar cells that fueled six blocks of massive lithium-ion batteries. Advanced engineering and science created a boat that uses marginally less energy than standard motorized boats of its size. An aerodynamic and energy efficient design makes the Planetsolar the new wave of aquatic engineering.
