SOLAR EXPO THE HYPER0OP PROJECT LOON THE SOLAR IMPULSE MS TURANOR PLANETSOLAR ONLINE ELECTRIC MEHICLES (OLEV) THE FUTURE (OF SOLAR POWER These solar technologies could revolutionise the way we travel, communicate and look after our planet: THE HYPERLOOP Supersonic transport system linking San Francisco with LA, The tunnel roofs are lined with solar panels providing more electricity than it would ever need. Real life 'Tony Stark' Elon Musk's proposal to revolutionise mass transit is in the concept stage, but could be completed in less than ten years. THE SOLAR IMPULSE Long range solar powered aircraft. Capable of taking off under its own power and intended to remain airborne for up to 36 hours. The slightly larger version, aiming for a circumnavigation of the globe in 20-25 days is expected to take flight in 2014. PROJECT LOON Thousands of balloons floating on the edge of space on a stratospheric wind, Loon will be able to beam Wi-Fi to remote locations dotted across the globe. Google's Loon uses a custom-built, solar-powered pump to carefully inflate or deflate the balloon remotely from the ground. Currently being tested. ONLINE ELECTRIC VEHICLES (0LEV) OLEV's can be charged while stationary or whilst in use and completely eliminate the need for charging stations or electric cables. Currently being used in South Korea. MS TURANOR PLANETSOLAR Powered by sunlight the MS Turanor patrols the oceans making sure that plankton and algae and tiny crucial life forms that support the water's ecosystems are thriving. In 2012, "Planetsolar", took a trip around the world energized exclusively by rays from the sun.
