Nowadays we hear a lot of information about eco-catastrophes. And certainly, the reason of them is negligent treatment of the mother-nature. So, every device which is able to mercy our environment is especially valuable to us. And the ship I am writing now about is such one. Planet Solar’s TURANOR is a very eco-friendly boat and looks like a spaceship. The boat is covered with solar panels. These solar panels power two electric motors that can reach a speed

of 15 miles an hour. This boat can go for three days without the sun energy thanks to its giant lithium-ion battery. I think we all wish to possess solar powered ships in the future, in order to prevent damaging of fauna and, generally, the environment.
