Not finding a viable near-term future in solar energy, a team of Missouri University engineering students is building a hydrogen vehicle. The group had built the Suntiger VI solar car but will now focus on a hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle capable of running 10 hours at 60 mph on a single tank of fuel. Team president Kenneth Keane explains: "We know the way technology is going these days and, unless there is a big breakthrough with solar technology, it's pretty impractical to continue building solar-

Undergrads at the University of Missouri-Columbia are hard at work putting together a hydrogen fuel cell solar vehicle that will compete in the 2007 World Solar Challenge. That’s about as green as it gets. The SunTiger team’s website is still focused on the team’s performance at the 2005 solar car and race, but information on the new vehicle, called Tigergen I, I think, is hidden in the “Tech” link and will be made more available when the SunTigers tour Missouri thi
