There's nothing like a good story on developing green technology. Green technology is among some of the most popular, topical and important. The story does a good job of visualizing the story with the futuristic picture of Domjan's completely solar powered boat. It's something that is important because it could be the next step in enhancing solar power. And is just interesting to see the technology adapt.
