We reported last week that a buncha solar-powered teenagers were rampaging westward from Austin, TX to Pasadena, CA. Yesterday collegiate students, with higher budgets and more advanced vehicles (we especially like Stanford's trick self-supporting lift-off top), also took off from Austin. Their destination? None other than The Great White North Calgary to be exact.
