The Cannonball Sun, Final Day

In one previous post and in another, I mentioned American university students Will Jones, Kyle Samluk, and Danny Ezzo, who were planning to take their home-made solar car Pink Skies on the Cannonball Run from New York to Los Angeles – see their website and Instagram.

Sadly, they had to terminate the drive because of extensive damage to their electrical system. As the map shows, they had completed just over 25% of the distance to Los Angeles. That is not a bad effort at all, and I salute them on their vision and their persistence. The solar car game is mostly about what you learn, and I’m sure they learned a lot, both during construction and during the trip!
