Team PrISUM with an unpainted Anthelion
Team PrISUm is currently putting the final touches to its Anthelion solar vehicle, with high hopes of a winning place in this year's American Solar Challenge
A team of Iowa State University students are busy putting the finishing touches to a solar-powered vehicle before setting off on a thousand mile race. Using computer-aided design and some novel engineering techniques, the students' three wheel craft weighs half that of previous creations and sports over 500 solar cells. Hopes are high for a winning result in the forthcoming American Solar Challenge.
