High-School Solar Cars Warp Space!

The Winston-Dell Solar Challenge ended Saturday, a day prior to the kickoff of the collegiate North American Solar Challenge. Houston Vocational Center's team won its fifth straight race, having traveled 953 miles. But wait? Wasn't the race route 1,600 miles? Have a bunch of lowly high school students discovered a warp tunnel between San Antonio and Deming, NM? Not exactly. During stretches where the vehicles would have to run on high-speed thoroughfares, the vehicles were trailered. We'll keep you posted if the guys from MIT's Solar Challenge team bust out with the wormhole technology.
