The Race for Water Foundation will launch a new oceangoing vessel in April to circle the globe. Powered by solar cells and hydrogen produced on board via sea water electrolysis, the ship will also get some help from a towing kite. The five-year expedition hopes to point the way to reducing marine pollution.
