Every two years, Australia holds the World Solar Challenge. It is a grueling 3,000-kilometer race across the Australian outback in cars powered only by the sun. Everyone from high school engineers to corporate sponsored giants is free to compete, and every year the cars go farther, and faster than before. VOA's Kevin Enochs reports.
