Kite Power

Postby rerickso » Mon Mar 28, 2005 6:26 pm

I thought you guys & gals might find this article interesting:

"For nine years a team of naval architects in Copenhagen, Denmark, has been working on a completely new design: a 50,000-ton cargo ship whose diesel engine will be augmented by a set of high-tech sails set on six masts. Canvas is definitely out. Aerofoils are in."

It's nice to know that the on-going advancements in kite design could one day both reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and help mend our ever-deteriorating relationship with the natural environment.
